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 – 7th grade) living outside the attendance zone.
Check out this helpful tool for families to locate and verify neighborhood school zones.
Our board updated enrollment policies for the 2019-2020 school year. Click here to review the changes.
The enrollment priority levels are as follows:
- Any child residing within the John Rex attendance boundaries. Residency verification is required.
- A child who resides outside the John Rex attendance boundaries but within the district boundaries of OKCPS. Residency verification is required. Additional priority will be given to applications for admission whose parent/guardian, or other person with legal custody, is employed within the John Rex attendance zone.
- A child who resides outside the district boundaries of OKCPS and whose parent or guardian is employed within the John Rex attendance boundaries. Employment verification must be provided. An out-of-district transfer form is required upon admission.
- A child who resides outside the district boundaries of OKCPS and whose parent or guardian is not employed within the JRCS attendance boundaries.
Please note: Tier 4 applications are no longer being accepted due to high demand.
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.

Only tier 1 students or current students’ siblings are eligible to enroll.
Residents of the tier one attendance zone may enroll at any time and are not subject to the lottery.
Tier 1 Attendance Zone Residents
Begins February 4
Residents in our Tier 1 Attendance Zone may enroll beginning February 4 and are not subject to the lottery. Please note that Pre-Kindergarten 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 will not be able to offer additional seats.
