• Open Enrollment Capacity

    Cartwright's open enrollment policy allows scholars living within the district boundaries to enroll in any district school that has capacity. All residents are guaranteed enrollment in a Cartwright school that is in a walking or transportation zone from their residence within the district.

    Per Policy JFB, the Cartwright School District posts each school's capacity and whether or not they are accepting new students. Schools will accept new students throughout the year as capacity allows and in alignment with the enrollment priorities. Current staffing and resident student growth are accounted for in capacity calculations.

    Capacity information for each school is listed below (updated 11/08/2023)
