Prospective Families

McAuliffe is pleased to offer in-person tours for 20 families every Wednesday and Thursday morning from 9:30am – 10:15am.

Sign up for a tour HERE.

We ask that families sign up for one slot ONLY. Each family may bring up to 3 people per family (you do NOT need to specify the number attending in the sign up process). Please do not bring siblings on tours. Families will need to remain outside the main entrance to the school until the 9:30am start time. In order to avoid traffic and waiting in the cold, please do not arrive more than five minutes before your tour. Prior to attending your tour, we strongly encourage you to access our promotional video, and activities list at your convenience via our school website.

If you have questions, please contact Sherry Beardshear at sherry_beardshear@dpsk12.net.

Current-Year Enrollment

If you are new to Denver, or your Denver address has changed and would like to attend a school other than your neighborhood school, please complete a Mid-Year Entry application to your preferred schools by creating an account and logging in here. We encourage you to first create a Parent Portal account, then log in using your Portal username and password.  Since McAuliffe is part of an enrollment zone, placement at schools in the zoon will be determined by availability at each school.

Questions? Call the SchoolChoice Hotline at 720-423-3493 or email SchoolChoice@dpsk12.org

Administrative Transfers

If you want to change schools but have not moved, please contact the school where your student is currently enrolled to request the Administrative Transfer form. Transfer approval is based on space availability, demonstration of genuine need and student history. Administrative Transfers are not a substitute for the SchoolChoice process and should be considered in serious situations only.
