Thank your interest in joining our Choice Schools and Programs. New applicants will be added to the bottom of the existing waitlist at the grade level requested for the school or program. All applicants applying to a Choice School or Program must be Bellevue School District residents at the time of application.  Nonresident students who are children of full-time employees of the Bellevue School District are eligible to apply.

New applications will be placed on the bottom of the applicant’s current grade level waitlist in the order received for possible entry in the fall for the upcoming school year. Students applying for language programs will be required to pass an appropriate grade level  language proficiency screening.
