The Sanibel School is not a "Choice" school. If you live off island, you must first register your child with School Choice at the Lee County School Public Education Center, and then apply for a waiver. Waivers are approved by the District on needs and space available bases. If you are off-island, again, the registration process starts at the Lee County Public Education Center. information can be found on the District website (leeschools.net) in the Student Assignment tab at the top of the homepage.
If you live on-island, our Information Specialist, Mrs. Donna Marks, is able to register children at The Sanibel School. She is not on campus during the summer and will return July 23rd. Please call her July 23rd or later before you come in to schedule an appointment (239-472-1617). Appointments are available between 8 AM and 3 PM daily.
Please bring the information below to your appointment. Thank you.
