Open Enrollment

The information below provides a summary of our recent Open Enrollment process for the 2019-2020 school year. However, PLEASE NOTE, THE WINDOW TO APPLY IS NOW CLOSED.  Your next opportunity to apply for an Open Enrollment Intra District transfer will be next January 2020, based on space availability.


Each year, the Los Gatos – Saratoga Union High School District seeks to provide enrollment options for students who live within our attendance area, specifically through our open enrollment process.  

For the 2019-2020 school year, the open enrollment process is available for students who reside within either the Los Gatos High School attendance area or the Saratoga High School attendance area and wish to request an intra-district transfer to the other school.  The open enrollment period for the 2019-2020 school year will be from January 22 through February 8, 2019.  A limited number of spaces will be available for open enrollment and, due to increasing enrollment at Los Gatos High School, this number (at LGHS) will again be limited.  Should the number of requests exceed spaces available, the district will establish a random selection process and build a waiting list for students not approved for transfer.

If you have any questions, please contact Paula Wessels in the Student Services Office at
