I don't think school can turn someone down if they are applying before registration period is closed. Also, I don't see how they can turn someone down if they (let's say) moving during the year - if child goes to the school he/she is not zoned to, there will be no school bus...

We were at pre-registration at our school and I was surprised there were only few people there...

I know for PHUHS IB program there is an application time period...which closes and then you are notified by calling a number or by mail...usually there is a waiting list and kids are placed on it...

^^^ correct and some schools when the school size limit is reached they can turn kids down. Aside from that the rules for school zone choice are changed that it is almost impossible and where years ago hardly any questions were asked, now the proof is needed and often the schools can go by where you live on a certain day and if they don't have any spots open than you will be out of luck.

Many schools don't have that problem but some are so desired that many parents will try to get their kids in that school.
