Admission Process

Applying to DCIS at Fairmont

DCIS at Fairmont is a DPS neighborhood school and all enrollment is managed by the DPS Office of Choice and Enrollment Services. As such, enrollment is not guaranteed unless you live within our boundary neighborhood in Baker. Interested families MUST apply through the District choice process AND MUST complete a Home Language Survey in the DCIS at Fairmont office.

The following information will be used to prioritize applicants during the Round One SchoolChoice student assignment process.

Dual Language Immersion Stand:  We hold 50% of our spots in our DLI classrooms for students that are fluent in Spanish or bilingual. Therefore each in-coming class is filled off of two waitlists: Spanish qualified and not Spanish qualified.  You will note if your child is Spanish qualified on your DPS school choice application, we will reach out to have you complete the home language questionnaire for your child and schedule your child for a language assessment.  Feel free to reach out by emailing with any questions.

English-Only Strand:  Our English classes are filled from our waitlist with the priorities here built in: DCIS at Fairmont School Choice Priorities.

Denver Public Schools makes every attempt to accommodate siblings who apply together in the same school year. A separate SchoolChoice form must be submitted for each sibling to be considered.
