  • Palm Springs Unified School District is an open enrollment district. This means that:

    • You may choose to apply to send your child(ren) to any school (except to Mt. San Jacinto HS or any other school listed above) in PSUSD.
    • Approvals are made based on space availability.
    • If your child is currently on an approved INTRA-District Transfer, you are not required to re-apply as long as your child remains in the same school.  
    • If you move out of PSUSD boundaries you will need to secure an INTER-District transfer, annually, from your District of Residence, if you would like your child to remain in a PSUSD school.
