Open Enrollment

Do you live outside of the Hopkins School District, but you would like your child to attend one of our schools? You will need to apply for Open Enrollment. For the 2020-21 school year, you may apply for open enrollment, but we are running a waiting list at this time. The waiting list will be reviewed on a regularly scheduled basis. You are welcome to join our waiting list at any time and will be contacted if a space opens. You must submit an open enrollment application to be added to the waiting list. 

Families of open enrolled students generally provide their own school transportation. There is no tuition charged for open enrollment. Open enrollment applications are available in English, Spanish, Somali, and Hmong in the 'Resources' section.

Applications for the 2021-22 school year need to be submitted by January 15, 2021 to be entered into the initial lottery. Applicants will be contacted by Feb. 16 with an offer for placement. Students not placed will be put on a waiting list. All applications received after Jan. 16 will be placed on a waiting list based on date received. If offered a placement, you will need to provide a proof of residency.


Please contact the school office you are interested in attending if you have questions about the school or would like to arrange a tour of the school. Contact information for each school may be found under the 'Schools' menu on the top of this page.
