Our district-wide school choice program frees students from a one-size-fits-all learning model and offers them a customized program suited to their talents and interests. This learning model builds confidence, helps students increase their knowledge and skills, and puts them on a course for success in school and in life.

If your child loves the visual or performing arts, we have schools that fuse the arts with their academic lessons. If your child is interested in the Medical or Technology fields, our Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MedTech7) will provide them a unique opportunity to explore these industries through hands-on, real-world learning experiences. If your child has a talent for languages, we have schools that offer dual-language programs where students speak those languages in many of their academic classes. All district schools maintain a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics focus, as well as core subjects in the arts, world languages and technology.

Qualifying students can attend a school choice program, however, enrollment capacities will determine the ability to offer school choice to students outside their regular attendance zone.

If you have questions, please contact the school directly.

In–School Choice Program is a program offered to students who live in the zone for the school. In-school choice students do not have to fill out a school choice application. 

Out–of–Zone students may apply to a choice program at any school, with the exception of an in–school choice program, as this option is only offered to students who live in the zone for the school. 

There are five schools within the district with no availability for choice because these schools are at or above capacity in terms of overall student enrollment. Students zoned for the five schools are: Bluffton High School, Hilton Head High School, May River High School, H. E. McCracken Middle School, and Pritchardville Elementary School.
