Enroll in Milwaukee Public Schools

girl at grammar school smilingWelcome to the MPS family! We are excited that you are ready to enroll your child and begin the learning journey to high school graduation and beyond. MPS has nearly 150 schools from Head Start through high school and dozens of programs to fit every student.

Some charter and partnership schools require students to enroll on-site or through assignment from Central Services. Each school’s enrollment policy is listed on the school’s page.

When you fill out an enrollment form, you will be asked to give your top three school choices. If your top-choice school has space available and any entry requirements have been met, your child will be enrolled in your first-choice school. Your second or third choice will be assigned if your first choice is not available.

How to Select a School

  • Use the MPS Find a School Tool. You can search for schools by name, keyword, location, or programs.
  • Visit school websites to learn about each school’s programs and offerings. Some schools offer virtual tours.
  • Call a school and speak to the office. You can make an appointment to talk to the principal and ask questions.
  • Click on How to Select a School for important information about MPS.
  • Call the District Enrollment Office in the Department of Student Services for specific questions about your child's needs at (414) 475-8159.
