    2020-2021 Enrollment info:

    Current families with incoming kindergarten students:

    You must register your children through our new online registration with SPS and then you may submit a School Choice form during Open Enrollment between  Feb. 3-14, 2020 to apply for John Stanford International in September 2020. Be sure to indicate on the choice form that your incoming kindergartner has a sibling already attending JSIS.

    Current John Stanford International 5th graders rising to middle school:

    • If you live within the Hamilton International School boundaries, your child will automatically be assigned to Hamilton.
    • If you live outside the Hamilton International boundaries, and you want your child to continue with language immersion at Hamilton, you must submit a choice form to SPS during Open Enrollment between  Feb. 3-14, 2020 for Hamilton; this is an automatic guaranteed assignment if you apply during Open Enrollment.
    • If you live outside the Hamilton International boundaries and you prefer that your child attend the middle school assigned to your home address, you do not need to do anything. Your child will automatically be assigned to that school.

    Please be aware that transportation to middle school is based on home address. It is possible your child may not be eligible for school bus transportation to and from middle school.  If you are in middle or high schools and live outside of the school service area you will receive an Orca Card.

    Current students thinking about leaving to another school or program?  (for example, HCC or Spectrum Advance Learning).  Please be aware if you apply to another school and space is available at that school, the district will assign your child automatically during the first phase of choice assignments to that program or school causing your student to lose their existing assignment to John Stanford International.  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 John Stanford Int’l office at least 10 working days prior to the due date.  Please bring the records request, along with an addressed envelope and two first class stamps.
