May 15 is Deadline for Open Enrollment Choice Applications

Four schools in Johns Creek can accept transfer students.

The Fulton County School System has identified 19 schools, including four in Johns Creek that can accept transfer students next school year through Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Act (also called House Bill 251).

Approved in 2009, the Intra-District School Choice section of the law – which Fulton County Schools calls “Open Enrollment” – allows parents of students enrolled in a public K-12 school to enroll in another school within the district if space allows. However, parents must provide their own transportation. 

In Fulton County, the schools available for Open Enrollment transfers are:


  • Bethune Elementary School
  • Birmingham Falls Elementary School
  • Conley Hills Elementary School
  • Hapeville Elementary School
  • Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary School
  • Liberty Point Elementary School
  • Oakley Elementary School
  • Renaissance Elementary School





  • Paul D. West Middle School
  • Woodland Middle School


  • Banneker High School
  • Cambridge High School
  • Creekside High School
  • Langston Hughes High School
  • Tri-Cities High School 

Application Deadline is May 15
The application deadline is Tuesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m., and parents will be notified of their child’s transfer status by June 30. A transfer application is available online. Printed forms also can be picked up from six administrative locations:

  • Fulton County Schools Administrative Center (786 Cleveland Ave. SW, Atlanta)
  • Jo Wells Center (554 Parkway Drive, Hapeville)
  • Milton Center (86 School Drive, Alpharetta)
  • Professional Learning Center South (3121 Norman Berry Drive, East Point)
  • Teaching Museum North (793 Mimosa Boulevard, Roswell)
  • The Meadows Operations Center (5270 Northfield Boulevard, College Park)
