What is high school choice?

It is the philosophy of the Vail School District to provide families with a choice in the high school that their student attends. The Vail School District has created six unique high schools for our families living within the school district boundary to choose from. Through this process, families will have the opportunity to learn more about each of the high schools and choose the school that provides the programs, courses, and activities that best meets the interests and needs of their student.

Families will submit their HS school choice rankings online through the school choice portal 1/31-2/20. Submissions can be input and changed multiple times while the portal is open. All choices made while the online portal is open are treated equally, this process is not first come first served. Families will need their parent PowerSchool login and password to access the school choice portal. If you are experiencing sign in issues, please visit ps.vail.k12.az.us/public/ to recover your password and/or contact your child’s middle school for assistance. All families will be notified of the results by 5pm on Friday, March 4th, 2022 by email.

Any family who resides in the Vail School District boundaries, but did not send their 8th grade student to a Vail school, should reach out to Pam Scanlon at 520-879-3982 or schoolchoice@vailschooldistrict.org to make their choices.

All out of district families that would like to apply for Open Enrollment can fill out an application at vailschooldistrict.org by March 1st.
