Based on your signature, this may be an unnecessary comment, but I'm going to make it just in case. Custodial laws are often enforced and practiced quite differently than they are written and sometimes it is simply a matter of giving the proper people a copy of the law and pushing them to let you exercise your rights as written. I have even had cops and prosecutors respond to me with astonishment when I've pushed them to check the actual wording of a law they "enforce" all the time but haven't actually read in years (or ever).
Where I live (Indianapolis), our law allows kids to attend the public school in EITHER parent's neighborhood, regardless who has custody. But you will not find a school employee nor even many family law attorneys who know that. Parents get told all the time - even by their own lawyers! - that their child can't be enrolled in the school near the non-custodial parent.
This may not be the case where you are, but it's certainly worth reading the original documents (i.e., the law) for yourself, before assuming that your only choices are to lie, to spend thousands returning to court, or to send your SS to a lesser school.
