Enroll in a 4J school

Find my schoolEvery residence within 4J’s boundaries is connected to a school at the elementary, middle and high school level. Most families choose to have their children attend their neighborhood schools, which offer many advantages. To learn which schools are your neighborhood schools, click on “Find My School” at left (this will take you to a regional land information website where you can look up your address) or call 541-790-7571.  

How to enrollWhen you are ready to enroll your child in your neighborhood school, or another school you selected through the district’s school choice process, you may begin by picking up an enrollment packet at the school or printing many of the required forms from this website. 

School choiceParents in the Eugene School District may choose their children’s school. The Eugene School District’s school choice policy allows any student in the district to attend any 4J school, provided there is space available (subject to transfer limits). Placement is by lottery. 

Non-district residentsStudents who live outside the Eugene School District boundaries and want to attend a 4J school may seek an exchange (placement by lottery) or pay out-of-district tuition. School placement requests are handled on a space-available basis; students who live within the district’s boundaries have priority for these spaces.  

International students4J welcomes a limited number of international students each year to attend its four comprehensive high schools: South Eugene, North Eugene, Churchill, and Sheldon.

What does “4J” stand for?Many people simply say “4J” when referring to Eugene School District 4J — “4J” is quick and easy to both say and write, and it helps to differentiate from the Bethel School District, which is also located in Eugene. But where did the name come from?

What are the district’s beliefs, values and philosophy?
