Hamilton County Schools Announces New School Options And Timeline

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

For the 2019-2020 school year, Hamilton County Schools is opening enrollment to a select group of schools, “My Future Schools,” to which students across the district will be eligible to apply. Officials said, "Opening enrollment to these schools will provide students with a diverse range of options outside of their neighborhood zoned school. These schools will be in addition to the 15 magnet schools that were previously open to all students."

 

“Choosing a child’s school is one of the most important life decisions for a parent,” said Dr.

Bryan Johnson, superintendent. “Whether a student has dreams of being a dancer on Broadway, an engineer designing alternative energy transportation of the future, or learning the skills needed for an exciting career in medicine, Hamilton County Schools provides opportunities and options to open doors to the vast possibilities available for your child to find success.”

There are four categories of schools students are eligible to apply for outside of their zoned school: Magnet Schools, Future Ready Institutes, Early College, and Open Enrollment Schools.

Over the next several months, Hamilton County Schools will provide several opportunities for families to visit and learn more about these school options. See the timeline below for more information.
