Info for Current Families

2017-2018 Important Enrollment Info:

Current JSIS families with incoming Kindergarten students:

You must register your children with SPS and submit the School Choice form by Friday, February 24th if you want your student to attend JSIS in September 2017. Be sure to indicate that your incoming Kindergartener has a sibling already attending JSIS.

Current JSIS 5th graders rising to middle school:

If you live in the Hamilton International Middle School Attendance Area, and you want your child to attend Hamilton, you do not have to do anything. Your child will automatically be assigned there.

If you live outside the Hamilton International Middle School Attendance Area, and you want your child to attend Hamilton, you must submit a School Choice form by February 24th to Enrollment Services, indicating language immersion at Hamilton. Your child has priority to attend Hamilton to follow the language immersion pathway and is guaranteed a spot, but you must fill out the form.

If you live outside the Hamilton Attendance Area, and you prefer that your child attends the middle school assigned to your home address, you do not need to do anything.  Your child will be automatically assigned to that school.

Use this link to check your school assignment. Please be aware that transportation to middle school is based on home address, so it is possible that your child may not be eligible for school bus transportation.

Families thinking about moving your student to another option school or program (for example APP or Spectrum):

Please be aware if you submit a School Choice form to one of these schools and there is space available at that school, the District will assign your student to that program and your student will lose their assignment to JSIS. If you have any questions about this, please ask us before turning in your paperwork.

Families switching to a private school:

All application materials must be submitted to the JSIS Office at least two weeks prior to the due date. Please bring the records request, along with an addressed envelope and three first-class stamps.

New admission forms are available online and in-person at the JSCEE Admission Center.
