Equal Opportunity

Queen’s Grant High School admits students of any gender, race, color, religion, disability, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, disability, national and ethnic origin in administration of its

Special Education

Special Education programs and services are offered at Queen’s Grant High School. Queen’s Grant High School provides a program and service model on its campus that best addresses the needs of students who are able to spend the majority of their time in the general education classroom with support from special education service providers.

Open enrollment is designed to give all interested parents equal opportunity for their student to attend Queen’s Grant High School. During open enrollment, all applications get equal consideration regardless of date submitted. An application received on the last day of open enrollment receives equal treatment to one received on the first day of open enrollment. Open enrollment for the next school year always ends on the last business day in February.

Open Enrollment ends on the last business day of February at 5:00 p.m. Applications must be complete and received by the school office prior to the end of the school day. Following the close of open enrollment, if the number of applications exceeds the number of open seats, a random selection lottery determines acceptance. If the number of applications does not exceed the number of open seats, all applicants are accepted for their respective grade.

A lottery will be held for any grade in which the number of applications exceeds the number of openings. Names are randomly selected and applicants are accepted based on the order in which they are selected. The lottery continues until all names are drawn. Applicants who are not accepted will be placed on a waiting list in the order their names were selected. Applications received after Open Enrollment are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for any remaining openings or placed on a waiting list.

If your student is Accepted:

If accepted, you will receive an Acceptance Notification. Parents must submit to the school all Admissions/Enrollment Items by the date specified in the notification. If these are not received by that date, your child may be removed from the school Accepted List.

If your student is on a Waiting List:

You will be notified of acceptance by email or phone if an opening becomes available for your student.

Enrollment preference is first given to currently enrolled students. Next preference is given to the following ordered categories of applicants: Children of employees working full-time in the operation of the charter school and the Board of Directors, siblings of currently enrolled students who were admitted to the school in a previous year, siblings who apply to the charter school for admission beginning in the same year, such as when a sibling was not initially admitted due to grade level capacity, and all remaining applicants.

The first preference category (children of employees working full-time in the operation of the charter school and children of Board members) is limited to no more than fifteen (15%) of the school’s total enrollment. The second preference category (siblings of currently enrolled students who were admitted to the school in a previous year) is not available in the school’s first year of operation.

Preferences apply to both the lottery and subsequent waiting list.

If permitted by law, other enrollment preferences may be granted.

Siblings include any of the following who reside in the same household: half siblings, step siblings, and children residing in a family foster home.  If siblings apply for the same school year, one surname card will be entered into the random selection process to represent all of the siblings applying at the same time.  If that surname card is selected, then all of the siblings shall be admitted to the extent that space is available and does not exceed the grade level capacity.  However, if the selected surname card represents multiple birth siblings and space is available for at least one of the multiple birth siblings, then all multiple birth siblings shall be admitted regardless of whether space is available in their respective grades.

It is not unusual for a small percentage of accepted students to select other options prior to the start of school. Openings created by opt-outs are filled by those on waiting lists. Do not become discouraged if your child is put on a waiting list. Openings can and do become available.

“I am truly grateful to Queen’s Grant High School for the many amazing opportunities that it has provided me with over the past 4 years. From the classroom dynamic of a small class size and hands-on teachers, to the countless extra-curricular activities that are offered, my high school experience was definitely one to remember. Honors and AP classes allowed me to excel in the classroom environment and Varsity Soccer has allowed me to put my talents to use on the field. Queen’s Grant is a wonderful atmosphere to learn and make friends at and I am honored to have called this campus my high school.” K. Delaney (Class of 2015)
