I am about to move to Des Moines. I want to pick the middle school my son attends. Will the school district allow me to do this?

It's July 2012. I'm moving to Des Moines. Can I choose which middle school my son, age 11, will attend? Also, when does registration begin?

Typically the easiest way to pick the school is to move into the area that is zoned for a particular school.

Some districts offer some form of 'school choice' but the deadlines for those are typically in the spring.

For specific information on the Des Moines schools, contact their school district here:

Good luck.
