Enrollment and Choice Services

At Tacoma Public Schools we recognize that every child is an individual with a unique learning style, personality and talent. That’s why we offer a variety of learning environments to fit every child’s need and why we offer CHOICE ENROLLMENT – meaning parents can select the school that is the right fit for their child.

Tacoma Schools educates students from age three to age 21 in a variety of learning environments aimed at providing individualized education that holds all students to high standards of achievement.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

At this time Mason MS, Truman MS, and First Creek MS are not accepting transfer applications. They continue to exceed building/program capacity and need to maintain space for students residing in their attendance areas.​​​​​​​​​​
