General Enrollment Information

The school enrollment zone includes students living in Mary Esther, Fort Walton Beach, Ocean City, Wright, Destin, Shalimar and unincorporated areas located south of Eglin Air Force Base and east of Hurlburt Air Force Base (including children living on those properties).

Notice of Non-Discrimination
The school prohibits discrimination against students and/or their opportunity to participate in appropriate programs, services and activities on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, marital status, parenthood, pregnancy, disability, sexual orientation, or social and family background. All programs and services shall be non-sectarian.
LJPS will enroll students who meet the eligibility criteria without regard to racial or gender except as needed to balance representatives of minority groups in accordance with the district’s prior year average for grade nine. In order to determine the need for racial/gender balancing, the LJPS Board of Directors will review the equity factors of the school as compared to the average of Okaloosa School District’s ninth grade for the preceding year as reported on the district’s automated record system in February. When deemed appropriate, the Board will establish specific equity objectives for the upcoming year’s enrollment slots. This objective, when applicable, shall be documented in the minutes of the Board of Directors prior to the date of registration/enrollment.
