School Tours

Tours for both Elementary and Middle school are typically offered at different times starting early Fall through about January/February. Please check the School Tours for specific dates or email our volunteer PTA tour committee at schooltoursbillroberts@gmail.com.

School Choice

Families who live in the Enrollment Zone must complete a School Choice form for all children entering ECE, kindergarten, middle school, and high school. Once your child is in Kindergarten, you do not need to complete another choice form until 5th grade unless you choose to move them from their assigned school for the following year.

Families outside of the Enrollment Zone who wish to choice into a school other than their home school must also complete a Choice Form.

For the 2023-24 school year, Round 1 runs from (around) January 13th through at 10 a.m. till February 16th at 4 p.m. All Round 1 forms are processed through a prioritized lottery. Children who do not receive their first choice of schools will be placed on the waitlist(s) for any school(s) with a higher priority than their school placement. For more information about the priorities or choice process, please visit the School Choice Website, or call the Office of Choice and Enrollment at 720-423-3493.

Round 2 runs from Mid-March through September 30th. All Round 2 forms will be added to the waitlist in the order they are received, after all Round 1 waitlisted students. Bill Roberts will pull from the waitlist through September 30th. Beginning October 1st, DPS no longer allows students to change school except in extenuating circumstances. At that time, an Administrative Transfer is required, which begins in the student’s current school.

You can only participate in School Choice online at: https://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org/.  The administration does not have any input into school selection as it is handled district-wide by DPS.


Bill Roberts is part of DPS School Choice please contact their office to begin the process of School Choice/Enrollment. To see a list of schools near you go to School Finder.
