Enrollment vs. Application

Enrollment is for students who currently live in our attendance zone. They may enroll at any time.

Application is for all students (Pre-K – 8th grade) living outside the attendance zone.

Check out this helpful tool for families to locate and verify neighborhood school zones.

The enrollment priority tier levels are as follows:

  1. Any child residing within the John Rex attendance boundaries. Residency verification is required.
  2. A child who resides outside the John Rex attendance boundaries but within the district boundaries of OKCPS. Residency verification is required.

After Tier 1, priority will be given to current student’s siblings entering at pre-k, and children of faculty.

As of January, 21, 2020, current students in good standing, regardless of admission date, grade, tier, or moving, will be grandfathered in.

If, at any time, the number of eligible students applying for admission exceeds the capacity of the school/grade level, the Head of School will conduct a lottery, which shall be held within the priority level and/or grade level that is oversubscribed, to select the student(s) that may be admitted to John Rex. Enrollment and admission decisions will be based on school capacity limitations, class/grade capacity limitations, program availability, and/or educational needs of the student.

Pre-Enrollment

Pre-Enrollment for New Attendance Zone Residents
Begins January 6 

Residents in our Tier 1 Attendance Zone who currently do not attend John Rex may pre-enroll students and are not subject to the lottery.

If enrolling for pre-k*, the enrollment window closes January 31. If you’re offered a seat, we’ll follow up with forms and paperwork. Complete all paperwork between March 2-6.

Enrollment

Only tier 1 students are eligible to enroll.
Residents of the tier one attendance zone may enroll at any time and are not subject to the lottery.

If enrolling for pre-k*, the enrollment window closes January 31. If you’re offered a seat, we’ll follow up with forms and paperwork. Complete all paperwork between March 2-6.

Currently Enrolled Returning Students
January 27 – January 31 

Currently enrolled students will receive a letter and intent to re-enroll from the office on January 27, 2020. The completed form plus a current proof of residency must be returned to the office on or before January 31 or the seat will be forfeited (this will be done again in the summer before school starts). Confirmation letters will be sent home to families on February 6 in the student’s folder. You may verify your residency in our attendance zone at https://johnrexschool.org/about/attend.

Enrollment for New Student Offered a Seat through Lottery
Due by March 6

Parents of new students, or pre-k siblings, that were offered a seat through the lottery will receive an email with a link to sign up for an appointment to enroll. Offered seats are forfeited if enrollment is not completed by March 6, 2020. A checklist of required items to bring is at the top of the enrollment form.

*Pre-k is not a mandated grade level to offer in public schools. The number of students in Pre-k is capped by state law; therefore, once each class is at capacity, we cannot offer additional seats. Tier 1 residents may not be offered a seat once we reach maximum capacity.

Application

John Rex School’s application window will open January 30.

New Student Applications
January 30 – February 14
The online application period opens for any new student in any grade on January 30. Applications must be made online at www.oneappok.com. The application window closes at 5:00PM on February 14. The lottery will be conducted in an online/open meeting on February 24 and results will be communicated via email.
