In addition to attending their neighborhood schools, families of Bend-La Pine Schools middle school students have options for their 6-8 education. Below are the schools and programs that are open to BLS 6-8 students. Spots in the magnet programs are available via the annual lottery, which this year will run in January 2024 (see more information).
