Enrollment Priorities

If Kindezi receives more applicants than there are spaces available, a public lottery is run to determine which student(s) will receive the open seat(s). Kindezi offers priority enrollment to students who meet one or more of the priority qualifications, which are detailed below.

For The Kindezi School West, there are three categories in which a student is given priority (in order of priority):

  • Children of Kindezi employees.
  • Siblings* of enrolled students at Kindezi West.
  • Students who are zoned for Walter White Elementary (see map here). Note: Kindezi is currently seeking approval to add the former Adamsville Elementary district from 2011-2012 as an additional priority zone. We expect to be able to utilize this priority in the 2020-2021 enrollment period.

For The Kindezi School at Old Fourth Ward, there are three categories in which a student is given priority (in order of priority):

  • Children of Kindezi employees.
  • Siblings* of enrolled students at Kindezi Old Fourth Ward.
  • Students that reside within the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, as outlined with a black line on this map. Students must reside within the black outline on the map to receive preference.

*For enrollment purposes, a sibling is defined as having one common parent or guardian.

LOTTERY & WAIT LIST

The lottery for enrollment in the 2019-20 school year took place on March 7, 2019. Results from the lottery are posted on Kindezi’s Schoolmint page.

Wait listed families are notified when a space becomes available, and will have 48 hours to respond to secure that space. We continue to fill spaces throughout the school year.

Please note that the wait list terminates prior to the lottery drawing for the following year. So if you would like to be entered into the lottery for enrollment in the following year, you must fill out a new application for the new school year.
