STEM Students


Choosing the right school for your child is the most important thing you can do for his or her future. And, CMSD offers a wide variety of school options to help you make the best choice.



The first step is to enter the School Choice Portal and create a “family account” to get started.

Create one family account by completing an application for each child when you apply to a new school:

  • provide an email address
  • create a username
  • set a password

Families are required to create a new family account each year an application is submitted for your child. The same email address or username may be used to create your new account.

Parents and guardians use a single-family account to create, save, edit and submit an application for each child in the family who is applying to a new school. Families will use this account to view lottery results and positions on school waiting list, if necessary. Creating an account with an email address is recommended.
