5th Grade Transition to Middle School
Posted 11/28/22

Dear parents of prospective 6th grade students,


The transition to middle school is on the horizon for 5th grade students. All incoming middle school students will receive a letter in the spring of 2023, from the school of residence, confirming their student’s placement. To find your school of residence, use our online School Locator.


Middle schools will be holding virtual family/student informational meetings to facilitate this transition. More information will be sent to families directly from middle schools to their future 6th-grade students. Meetings dates will be posted in early January on the middle school websites — visit our Schools Directory webpage for links to school websites.

Open Enrollment: January 9, 2023 – February 3, 2023

Santa Clara Unified continues to offer open enrollment, as space allows, at each of the district’s middle schools. Parents may request enrollment at any SCUSD school that has space available for additional students. Students requesting to attend a middle school other than their school of residence and district employees living outside the district boundaries must submit an application for middle school placement through the open enrollment process. Visit our Open Enrollment webpage for more information.


For questions about enrollment, please contact the Enrollment Center at or 408-423-3596.


Best regards, 


Johanna Gonzalez
