How to enroll in the Dual Language and STEAM² magnet lotteries
As part of the online pre-registration, you will be asked if you would like to enroll your rising Kindergarten student in one of the district magnet programs. If you answer, "Yes," you will have the option to select the program/s of your choice.
When the enrollment is complete (all required documents received at Lincoln Center) your child will be placed in the school assigned to his/her address. If your child is seated in the lottery, you will receive an email with instructions for accepting or declining placement.
More program information is available on the Dual Language and STEAM² program pages.
The Office of Student Enrollment is responsible for new student registration, address changes, transfers and school assignment for new and continuing students.
You may complete the online pre-registration process in advance or at Lincoln Center. To finalize your child's registration, you must appear in person at Lincoln Center. Only parents or legal guardians may register students. Legal guardians must present court-ordered custody or guardianship documentation. Notarized statements and powers of attorney are not acceptable.
Smith Middle Closed to New Students
Due to extreme overcrowding, Smith Middle School is closed to new students.
The Board of Education voted to close Smith Middle to students enrolled after July 18, 2019. New students enrolled after July 18, 2019 will be reassigned to other schools as outlined in Option #6 on the agenda abstract.
No neighborhoods with current Smith students will be reassigned. The new development at Carraway Village, which had no Smith students on July 18, was reassigned to Estes Hills Elementary, Phillips Middle, and East Chapel Hill High.
Voluntary transfers out of Smith are available.
