Deadline for Open Enrollment Choice Applications Approaches

Sweet Apple Elementary School is included in the available school selection. Applicants must turn in forms to the Fulton County School system by May 15.

Twenty-one Fulton County Schools will accept transfer students next school year through Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Act, including one Roswell school.

Approved in 2009, the Intra-District School Choice section of the law – which Fulton County Schools calls “Open Enrollment” – allows parents of students enrolled in a public K-12 school to enroll in another school within the district if space allows. However, parents must provide their own transportation.

There are seven schools in Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton and Johns Creek included within the 21 schools.

In Fulton County, the schools available for Open Enrollment transfers are:


Birmingham Falls Elementary School

Conley Hills Elementary School

Findley Oaks Elementary School

Hapeville Elementary School

S.L. Lewis Elementary School

Medlock Bridge Elementary School

Love T. Nolan Elementary School

Renaissance Elementary School

Shakerag Elementary School

Sweet Apple Elementary School


Bear Creek Middle School

Haynes Bridge Middle School

McNair Middle School

Sandtown Middle School

Paul D. West Middle School

Banneker High School

Cambridge High School

Creekside High School

Langston Hughes High School

Tri-Cities High School

Westlake High School

Application Deadline is May 15

The application deadline is Wednesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m., and parents will be notified of their child’s transfer status in June. A transfer application is available online. Printed forms also can be picked up from six administrative locations, including:

  • Fulton County Schools Administrative Center (786 Cleveland Ave. SW, Atlanta)
  • Jo Wells Center (554 Parkway Drive, Hapeville)
  • Professional Learning Center South (3121 Norman Berry Drive, East Point)
  • The Meadows Operations Center (5270 Northfield Boulevard, College Park)

Received applications will be assigned a lottery ID number which will be used to randomly select approvals for transfers should the number of applicants surpass the number of available seats at each schools. If students are not chosen for their first choice of transfer, the application will be considered for the secondary choice(s).
