Ruth Bader Ginsburg Elementary is set to open for the 2023-24 school year.
It is the first time VPS will offer a school that is entirely a Spanish/English Dual-Language program, and also one of the first two choice schools VPS will offer at the primary level.
Applications open February 21, 2023
What are the benefits for your child becoming bilingual, biliterate and bicultural?
Who can apply?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of our first two elementary choice schools with no “neighborhood school” boundaries. Interested students across the district are encouraged to apply.
Since starting bilingual education at an early grade is essential for success, RBG will enroll students in kindergarten and first grade the first year it is open. Grades offered each school year will expand as the students progress until all grades preschool through fifth grade are offered.
Transportation will be provided for students who live in the VPS district.
How do I apply?
Attend a parent session
Attend a parent information session for the program that your child is interested in.
What is the selection process and timeline?
Students who have applied for the RBG Spanish/English Dual-Language program will begin getting notified by May 19, 2023, and will be required to accept or decline by May 26, 2023.
The selection process for all programs of choice, secondary and elementary, assigns a set number of openings based on the student’s neighborhood school’s population size and factors of that school community. This selection process is an effort to assure that enrollment within programs of choice mirrors those of the district.
