Students currently attending SDUHSD schools

Students must currently reside within SDUHSD district boundaries to participate in high school selection. Note: Students who are currently on an approved Interdistrict transfer will not be able to make a high school selection. All current Interdistrict students must reapply annually.

  • All current grade 8 students who will attend grade 9 in the district must submit an online selection of the high school that they wish to attend in fall 2020 and follow all required procedures or select “Not Returning” to work with the school registrar for record transfer.

  • Only grade 9-11 high school students who currently attend a SDUHSD high school and wish to CHANGE HIGH SCHOOLS will need to select the new high school that they want to attend in fall 2020. Current SDUHSD high school students who will stay at their same school do not need to make a selection and will automatically be re-enrolled in the current high school for next year. 

During the selection window/before the selection window closes at 4:00 on Monday, March 2, 2020, please follow these steps to make your selection:

  1. Review the Aeries School of Choice tutorial and follow the directions outlined to make a high school selection for each eligible student.

  2. Click on the "Start Selection" button below to go to an existing Aeries portal account and then follow the process to make the selection for each eligible student. *If a parent never created an Aeries portal account, FIRST choose "Create New Account" and then follow the process to make the selection for each eligible student.

  3. After a parent or guardian makes a school selection, a confirmation email will be sent to the parent email address from Please review carefully prior to the final school selection deadline as no changes can be made to the selection after the deadline. Note: The choice will show as "pending" in Aeries until the SDUHSD final decisions. Families will receive a Welcome Notification on Friday, March 13.

There is no advantage to submitting earlier in the high school selection window. All applications submitted on or before 4:00 pm on the last date of the window each year have an equal chance.

No selections or submissions will be accepted after the March 2, 2020, 4:00 PM deadline and no changes will be made to selections after the deadline. There will be no exceptions to the board policies that govern high school selection.

Double check! If a student does NOT attend a SDUHSD school right now, please use the Student not currently attending a SDUHSD start page.
