School of Choice

Parents of students residing outside our boundaries or currently attending another high school must complete the online School of Choice application if the student would like to attend Simi Valley High School. The forms in English and Spanish are available through the district link at right, and the original deadline to submit the application for the 2021-2022 school year was February 28, 2021. Applications received after the deadline are put on a waiting list. The application will be updated for the 2022-2023 school year some time after Winter Break.

During February 2022, which is School of Choice Month, school tours will be available. Private tours can be arranged with Principal Baxter if the February group tours are not an option. Please call the school at (805) 577-1400, Extension 6706, or email Office Manager Sharon Klug to request a date and time.

Prospective Pioneer families will want to attend our Open House and Student Showcase, which will be held on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 beginning at 6pm. The evening will give parents and students information about our superior academics programs, our athletics programs, our clubs, other extracurricular activities, and more.

If you have any questions about the School of Choice application process, please contact Registrar Beth Hankins or (805) 577-1400, Extension 6725.

School of Choice Month is February
Interdistrict Transfers Into SVUSD

Parents of students who reside outside of SVUSD boundaries who wish to attend Simi Valley High School or another SVUSD school will need to complete an Interdistrict Transfer Agreement. This form must be obtained from and submitted to your local school district for approval to leave your district (release). After you have been released from your district, submit the signed agreement to SVUSD's Educational Services department at the District Office, 101 West Cochran Street, Simi Valley, CA.  

The Ventura County school districts agree that once the releasing districts sign the agreement for a particular pupil, the releasing district will not  require families to obtain a new Interdistrict Transfer Agreement for that pupil for the subsequent 4 school years. By signing the agreement in Year 1, the district of residence intends to release the student from attendance in that district for 5 school years.

For further information on Interdistrict Transfers, please contact Janice Osborne in the Educational Services department.
