Choice Option schools provide alternatives to traditional education

Looking ahead to the 2022-23 school year, families may want to consider the Choice Option schools available within the

Bend -La Pine district. These schools all feature learning opportunities that are significantly different from the traditional programs and offer families a variety of learning styles to fit every student’s needs and interests. The Choice Option schools have the same standards and requirements as traditional schools within the district but may execute things a bit differently. New this year is the option for families to submit more than one application, allowing for a second or third choice school.
