How to Request a School

Follow these steps to find, request and register with a school:

There are as many ways of finding information as there are families! Here are some different ideas you can explore to help you find an MPS school for your student.

  • Watch our school enrollment videos

    This explains everything you need to know about the enrollment process in detail. Learn about school program options for prekindergarten, elementary, middle and high school. You can also watch a question-and-answer session with our Student Enrollment and Family Engagement teams.

  • Use the School Finder to see which schools are available to you based on your home address.

  • Read the Explore Now MPS guidebook available in many languages.

  • Once you know your options, contact the schools that interest you to take a tour or visit their open house. Open house events are scheduled this fall and winter to help families choose a school for the 2023-24 school year.

Complete a school request form. You will find helpful guidance on what to do and next steps.

Or, complete a paper school request form and return to Student Placement Services via mail or email.

Once you receive notification that your child is placed in an MPS school, the last step is to complete registration. You can complete this online or in person at your child’s new school.

The online registration form is available below. Please select the correct school year, and have the following information ready:

  • Emergency contact information
  • Previous school information
  • Health information

This is the final step after your child has already been placed at a school. If you do not already have a school placement from MPS, please go back to Step 1.
