student assignment

Each student enrolled in Guilford County Schools is assigned to an elementary, middle or high school in one of three ways: 1) based on the attendance area in which the student's parent(s) or court-appointed guardian/custodian lives, 2) through the application to a magnet or high school option program or 3) through compliance with federal laws.

School assignment is based on the following guidelines:

  • Domicile of parent(s) or court-appointed guardian/custodian
  • Discovery and development of individual student's gifts and talents
  • Parent choice of the appropriate educational program for the child
  • Efficient use of facilities
  • Determination by school staff that students meet the criteria of homeless children and youth as defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 2001


In compliance with federal laws, Guilford County Schools administers all educational programs, employment activities and admissions without discrimination because of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, color, age, military service, disability or gender, except where exemption is appropriate and allowed by law. Refer to the Board of Education's Discrimination Free Environment Policy AC for a complete statement. Inquiries or complaints should be directed to the Guilford County Schools Compliance Officer, 120 Franklin Boulevard, Greensboro, NC 27401; 336.370.2323.
