The Choice Program
Admission Process for the 2019-2020 School Year
The Choice Program provides an innovative educational option for students who are seeking strong academics in a small school, family-friendly environment. Students and their siblings can attend school on one campus for the duration of their elementary (grades 3-6), middle and high school careers. The Choice Program serves 80 percent of our student population.
Applications are accepted for current Kent School District students and for those outside of the district.
Criteria considered for student enrollment include (but are not limited to):
- Space availability
- School attendance
- Student discipline record
- Available support services or interventions.
Priority consideration is given to current, Kent School District students and siblings of current, Kent Mountain View students. Please see the application process below for details.
Step One: Complete the Application
All documents requested in the application form must be submitted to the school before the application is complete.
- If your student is currently enrolled in the Kent School District, use the Inside KSD Application.
- If your student attends school outside of the Kent School District or is homeschooled, use the Outside KSD Application.
Return completed applications via the mail, fax, or email.

Step Two: Attend Orientation
After receiving your completed application and upon review, our staff may contact you for an interview orientation based on grade-level anticipated openings.
If you are contacted, the orientation and school tour at the new location should take about an hour, and both the student and a parent/guardian should attend. Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete additional paperwork prior to your appointment.
Step Three: Notification of Admission Decision
All families who apply and are interviewed will be notified by May 31 if your student is admitted for the 2019-2020 school year. Placement is not based on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are accepted March 1 – April 30.
Step Four: Acceptance for the 2019-2020 School Year
Upon acceptance, all enrollment forms should be completed within 7 days to secure your student’s place. If out-of-district, an Interdistrict Transfer Form is required to be submitted to the Kent School District before a student will be enrolled.
