Optional Areas, Shared Boundaries, and Other Special Cases


Optional Areas

Certain areas of the San Diego Unified School District have been designated Optional Areas. Most Optional Areas are between two schools; a few are between three schools. If a student resides in one of these areas, he or she is considered a resident of the listed schools for that Optional Area only. The selected school remains the school of attendance for the duration of the student's attendance at that level (elementary, middle/junior, or senior high).
Optional Areas are shown in School Finder as a hyphenated list of the relevant schools. The School Finder results page must display one or more of the hyphenated names shown below for the address entered in order for an Optional Area to be applicable to your home address.
 
Please see Frequently Asked Questions on Optional Areas. Please also view Boundary maps to see the location of Optional Areas on each school's map. For instance, the Clay-Hardy Optional Area is shown on the both Clay map and the Hardy map.

Shared Boundaries

Farb and DePortola middle schools share an attendance area. Both schools serve grades 6-8. Please contact either school or the Neighborhood Schools and Enrollment Options office for more information.
 
Dana and Correia middle schools share an attendance area. However, the grade ranges do not overlap. Dana serves 5-6 and Correia serves 7-8. Also, please note that the Grant K-8 attendance area overlaps with the Dana/Correia-Roosevelt optional areas - thus, students residing in these areas have multiple options for middle level grades (5-8).
