Enrolling for the 2020-21 School Year
We will begin accepting 2020-21 school year open enrollment forms for prospective students on January 6, 2020. Forms will be accepted Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:30 am and 3:45 pm. They must be submitted in person as one of the enrollment criteria is based upon the receipt of these forms. The forms must be signed by a parent, but can be picked up/turned in by a friend or family member. For your convenience the open enrollment forms can be found below.

All openings are on a first come, first served basis and enrollment openings are filled from the waiting list. This means that if you are placed on the waiting list we will contact you immediately if space becomes available. Unfortunately, we are not able to tell you what number your child is on the waiting list because lists are constantly changing based on the criteria above. Because openings are based on available space within each grade level, your child may not be testing to fill an available seat but rather to be placed on the waiting list.
Scheduled tours of Vista del Sur are offered throughout the year. Visit our school tours page for dates.
