Parents should note that choosing an out-of-zone school may affect availability of school transportation. This program is administered by Hartford Public Schools.
There are magnet schools in each school zone. While the majority of students are from Hartford, this program is open to students from the Greater Hartford region.
School Choice Process
The most important thing to understand about school choice in Hartford is that all the participating schools are tuition free public schools with open enrollment.
