There are actually two schools districts in Centennial. Cherry Creek and Littleton. It's very easy to open enroll in elementary school. The older your kids get the tougher it is to do. If they have any special needs or are on an IEP, most schools will turn them away except their home school.

It is difficult to get transfers in the cherry creek district. There are exceptions, but the rule is live in the zone you want your kids to go to. It has to be a unique situation. Both for the school you desire to go to, and also the situation you are currently in.

Once again it depends on the school and the school district you are looking at. There are some schools that are highly sought after and they have fewer spaces for open enrollment. Another High School that has an IB program is Littleton High School and they also offer seats to students from outside the district who are looking for that level program.
The answer to that is yes and no. Yes, they can apply to change schools, but it must be granted by the incoming school before it can take place. Some of the schools, especially in the Cherokee Trail, Grandview, and Eaglecrest area are already at high enrollments, so they are much less likely to allow new students in. Cherokee Trail has an IB (International Baccalaureate) program so they have a certain number of students they will let into that program who are from other areas. As with many high schools, if you have something to offer they are more likely to let you in (i.e. you're a really great football player who can help the school gain a title).
