Congratulations to the April 2023 Scholar Superstars!
Pre-K and Kindergarten registration
Do you know a little one turning four or five by September 1? It's time to get them ready for school!
Enrollment for kindergarten and priority 1 pre-K students is now open! Learn about priority placements for pre-K, see a list of documents you'll need to enroll, and find your zoned school on our website.
Now's a great time to start planning for summer learning! Check out our Summer Program Directory, which lists all the different programs City Schools will be offering this summer. Registration is now open, and will require an Infinite Campus profile.
