    Middle School Choice at Providence Public Schools

     

    Families of current fifth-grade students have the opportunity to indicate their top four preferences for middle school placement each fall.

     

    The district uses a lottery system to assign seats to each school. To participate in the lottery families will need to submit their choices in February 2024. School choice forms are distributed to families in January and the lottery placement is announced late March.

     

    Placement preference will be given to:

    • Fifth grade students with an older sibling or household member enrolled in a particular middle school for the fall.
    • Neighborhood schools. (80% of school seats are reserved for students within 1.5 miles from home)
    • If a student does not have two schools within the 1.5 mile radius, the closest schools count as neighborhood schools.

     

    Students who register after the initial deadline are not eligible for the lottery and will be assigned after all of the lottery students are placed.
