The priority zone is determined by the zoned elementary school for the eligible attendance zone. Students whose address is zoned for one of the following elementary schools (Boyd, Grove Park/Woodson, Scott, and F. L. Stanton) are in the priority zone and have the option to opt in to the single gender academies. Students in the above zones will be given first preference to attend the single gender academies. If parent decides not to attend the single gender academies, Douglass cluster is the feeder pattern and the zoned schools are Harper Archer Middle School and Douglass High School.
The OPT-IN choice means that you are requesting that your child attend the single gender academy. If you choose to attend a single gender academy and you reside in the Boyd, Grove Park/Woodson, Scott or F. L. Stanton attendance zone, transportation will be provided.
Students have the ability to opt in one time to the single gender academy and receive priority. If a student in the priority zone does not Opt In and enrolls in Douglass, Harper Archer or another school but later wishes to enroll in a single gender academy, the student must complete a GENERAL ADMINISTRATIVE TRANSFER APPLICATION during the designated application period to transfer to a single gender academy. The student is eligible for transportation upon enrollment at the single gender academy.
