Registration

Registration of New Students

Enrollment is open to all legal residents who reside within the school boundaries in Harwood Heights.

School District 86 specifies that, to enter kindergarten, children must be five years of age by September 1st of their kindergarten year.  Students who do not meet the age requirement will not be enrolled early. To enter first grade, a child must be six years of age by September 1st. 

Students transferring into the school district will be accepted at the grade level recommended by the school of previous enrollment, unless the parent and building principal agree on other assignment in the best interest of the child.
