Enrollment vs. Application

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

Application is for all students (Pre-K – 8th grade) living outside the attendance zone. Tier 2 students are outside the attendance zone but are residents of the Oklahoma City Public Schools. Tier 3 students are students who live outside the boundaries of Oklahoma City Public Schools.

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.

Effective as of January 21, 2020 any current student attending the school will be allowed to continue to attend the school so long as the student remains in good standing and the student will not be subject to the requirements set forth herein regarding re-application for admission regardless of any change in the student’s residence. Any and all previous policies or procedures related to grandfathering based on year or tier of admission prior to the effective date of this policy revision are no longer in effect. Any student enrolled after January 21, 2020, and each year thereafter, whose admission to the school was based on residency in the Oklahoma City Public School District (Tier 1 or Tier 2) who moves out of said OKCPS District boundaries shall no longer be eligible to attend the school nor apply for admission to the school.

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.
