Our Building Renovation
Queen Anne Elementary is being renovated during the 2018-19 school year! We'll return to the QAE campus in 2019-20. The QAE campus is going to be expanded to better accommodate our enrollment, add a full-sized gym, improve the outdoor play area and more.
During the renovation, QAE is located at the John Marshall building near Greenlake. The address is 520 NE Ravenna Blvd.
See our Building Renovation Project page for more details.
District Enrollment Dates & Deadlines
Have an incoming kindergartener or are you new to Seattle Public Schools? Follow the two steps below. If you already have a student in SPS, but would like to move to Queen Anne Elementary, start with step 2.
Step 1: New Student Registration for the 2019-20 School Year Begins Jan. 7th, 2019
New Student Registration is a general enrollment process. See the SPS Registration site for information on registering. If your neighborhood school is your first choice, your registration is complete.
Step 2: Open Enrollment for School Choice is Feb. 4th-22nd, 2019
If you're interested in having your child attend Queen Anne Elementary, the next step is to submit that choice during the Open Enrollment period. See the SPS School Choice and Open Enrollment page for details. Also check the Open Enrollment Fast Facts page.
The district will continue to accept school choice applications up until later in Spring (date TBA). Any enrollment forms received by Feb. 22nd are treated the same. Forms received after Feb. 22nd aren't given any tiebreaker priorities, making it less likely that you'll get into QAE or another option school.
Sibling Reminder: If you have a student currently enrolled at Queen Anne Elementary and plan to send your other child/ren to QAE, you must complete the Open Enrollment for the incoming sibling(s).
Selection Process and Tie-Breakers:
The school district reviews all school choice forms submitted by the deadline and attempts to match students with their top choice. In the event, that there are more students than there are spots available, enrollment is determined by a series of tie-breakers. The are, in order:
The Queen Anne Elementary Geo Zone covers, roughly, all over Upper and Lower Queen Anne. See the QAE Geo Zone map for details.
If your student is initially on the waiting list when assignments are available, they may eventually get a spot at QAE as other students decide on other schools or move out of the area (no guarantees though)!
