All Adams 12 incoming 9th graders who reside within the Adams 12 boundaries are eligible to apply for all of the above programs, regardless of their attendance area boundaries.  For the 2021-2022 School year, based on current enrollment, Legacy and Horizon High Schools will not be accepting applications to their specialized programs from students who reside outside of the district.  Northglenn High School will only accept applications from out-of-district students who attended one of our STEM K-8 schools.  Mountain Range and Thornton High Schools will accept applications from out-of-district students.  As a result, families do not need to submit a choice application if applying directly to one of these specific programs.
