Our Children. Learning Today. Leading Tomorrow.

Muir Grad Welcome!  We are delighted that you are considering the schools of the Pasadena Unified School District as the next step in your child’s education!

The schools of Pasadena Unified offer a wide variety of educational options designed to prepare the critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders of tomorrow.

Vibrant academics, exceptional teachers, and supportive school communities that nurture the whole child are the hallmarks of our schools. We invite you to explore our academic programs, including:

Open Enrollment-School Choice

PUSD's annual Open Enrollment-School Choice period offers families an opportunity to apply to attend a school other than their assigned school in the next academic year.

PUSD's Open Enrollment-School Choice offers families an opportunity to apply to themed, magnet, or specialized schools and programs outside the boundaries of their school of residence. Families can apply for PUSD's Dual Language Immersion Programs in French, Mandarin or Spanish; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); International Baccalaureate; visual and performing arts; high school college and career academies, and much more.

Open Enrollment-School Choice selection is by random lottery. Registration for students selected in the first lottery takes place in early March. Online applications for a second lottery, which includes Applications of Interest from out-of-district families, then occur. For a calendar of dates and more information, visit

The Office of Enrollment, Permits & Student Records is ready to help you locate schools, provide registration information, and answer questions. We invite you to call us at 626-396-3639.
