How to register your child for school

Other Resources

If your child has never attended an APS school before, you need to enroll him or her using the process outlined below.

Note: You do not have to re-enroll your students when they transition from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school — their current school will register them at their new school.

Contact your current school for more information.

When to register?
Registration is held weekdays, when school is in session, at all elementary, middle, and high schools. Please call your school for more information.
