Metro families have a brand new digital advantage in the Fall Application process this year. The new GeoZone mapping tool helps families find just the right fit by showing them exactly where they stand among the dozens of options available.
The Office of Student Assignment has been hard at work for months developing this new tool, which guides families not only through their own school zones, but also maps out:
GeoZone comes along just in time with the Fall Application period in full swing. By mapping out school options GeoZone complements the ZoneFinder tool, which helps families find their school of zone.
Try it out for yourself. It's easy to use and packed with information. Use the icons listed below to navigate and find the school you're looking for. Once you've found a school on the map, you can roll your cursor over or click on it to find more information about the school, such as its School Profile and website.

More options than ever before.More opportunities to see those options first hand.More schools and programs that are as unique as your child.
The Fall Application is so much more than a name change.
You and your child choose the right fit.
Is your son interested in science and technology? There are schools for him. Does your daughter have a flair for the arts? There are schools for her, too. There are schools for students who ask a lot of questions and for students who enjoy hands-on or project-based learning; schools for high school students who want to graduate early or students who want to work outside of the classroom. We have options for everyone.
We’ll guide you through the options.
The Fall Application period opens on November 7, but you can get started right now. Our Fall Application website can guide you through all of the options and help you find the best ones for your child. Our Customer Service Center can also help you through the process.
But the best way to learn about our schools is the old fashioned way: visiting schools and talking to educators. There are plenty of opportunities to do just that, starting on November 7 at the Fall Application Kick-off Event at IT Creswell Arts Magnet (3500 John Mallette Drive, 37218). There you can meet representatives from nearly three dozen schools, learn about their programs and offerings, and even apply on the spot. Schools will also hold walk-throughs and tours to give you a firsthand look at your child’s options. Contact the school to see when they will be offering tours.
Selection Day (formerly known as Lottery Day) is January 7 at the Martin Professional Development Center (2400 Fairfax Avenue, 37212). The selection process has been streamlined using the display technology available at the Martin Center, making it an easier and more enjoyable event for parents. Representatives from various schools will also be on hand to offer information during the selection process.
It’s a lot to take in, but that’s only because we have a lot to offer. We are proud of the options available to Metro Schools’ families and we will help you find just the right one.
