IPS students who live approximately .5 miles from a K-6 or K-8 choice school receive proximity priority in the lottery process.


IPS operates three programs that offer multiple sites: Center for Inquiry (2, 27 and 84), Montessori (56, 87 and 91), and the Butler Lab Reggio Program (55 and 60). These schools operate in zones within IPS. Students within these zones receive transportation and priority admission to their zoned CFI, Montessori or Butler Lab school. Students outside of the school’s zone can apply, but will not receive transportation or priority admission. Note:

  • Center for Inquiry School 70 is a district-wide choice school and therefore does not have a zone
  • Current students at Butler Lab School 60 zoned to Butler Lab School 55 will be provided transportation to School 60 for the 2019-2020 school year. This also applies to rising kindergarten applicants who are siblings of current School 60 students.
