Where is your attendance zone?

Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, The Museum School will no longer use a tiered attendance zone. The Museum School’s attendance zone, as in years past, is all of the DeKalb County school district.

How does the application process work?

The lottery for the 2023-2024 school year has concluded. Open enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year will run January 2 – February 9, 2024 (5:00 pm). During this time, submit an online application. The lottery will be held on February 27, 2024, and parents will be notified immediately via email.
