PSD’s school choice program allows families to select the school that best meets their child’s educational needs. More than 70% of PSD families choose to send their children to their neighborhood school, the school localed in the attendance area in which they live. Space permitting, families may choose to send their child to a neighborhood or choice school located outside of their attendance area.
PSD has 31 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, 7 high schools, 2 charter schools and 1 K-12 online school.
Approximately 11,500 students are safely transported to and from school every day by the 129 PSD school buses. Transportation is offered to and from school for full-day Kindergarten as well as all neighborhood schools. Transportation is not offerred for school choice.
