Student Enrollment

Welcome to the enrollment page where you will learn all there is to know about enrolling in our Washington Township International Baccalaureate World Schools! 2014-15 was our first year of being a fully authorized International Baccalaureate World School District!

Students living within the boundaries of Metropolitan School District of Washington Township, may enroll at any time during the school year, and designated times during the summer months, by submitting the required documents to the school where the student will attend. Kindergarten enrollment for 2019-20 begins February 6, 2019 and will continue on weekdays from 9am-3pm at the schools. Students must be at least five years old by August 1, 2019 to start kindergarten in August 2019. Please take the required documents to the school where your student will attend and speak with the administrative assistant in the office about your intent to enroll.

Required documents for enrollment grades 1-12:

  • Child’s birth certificate
  • Child’s immunization record
  • Two proofs of residency – mortgage statement/homeowners insurance (or lease) AND a current utility bill
  • Most recent report card
  • Standardized test results
  • Non-Resident or Limited Choice approved students should bring their confirmation letter or email.
  • In addition, students must be enrolled by a parent or guardian and must reside in the Washington Township School District.

Based on the overwhelming support of our Washington Township community we broke ground on two new elementary schools last October, which will be completed by the beginning of the 2019-20 school year. With the addition of two new elementary schools, it has been necessary for our district to re-balance our enrollment and many of our enrollment boundaries will look different from last year, when those new buildings open. We are thrilled that you will be joining our Washington Township Family!

If you are uncertain which school your child will attend for the 2019-20 school year, we invite you to visit the Washington Township interactive map page to verify the school your child will attend.  You can navigate there via the “Know Your Zone” tab or graphic or by going to https://www.msdwt.k12.in.us/attendance-boundaries/  The front office staff at any of the schools can help with this as well.  Upon determining your assigned school, you will go to that location to enroll your child.  If you are assigned to attend Willow Lake Elementary School, you will go to either Greenbriar Elementary (8201 N. Ditch Rd.) or Fox Hill Elementary (802 Fox Hill Dr.) to enroll your child. If you are assigned to Clearwater Elementary, you will go to John Strange Elementary (3660 E. 62nd St. ) to enroll your child. Please note that for the 2019-20 school year, all Allisonville Elementary students (including Kindergarten students) should register at Allisonville Elementary (4900 E. 79th Street), however ALL Allisonville Elementary students will attend school at the John Strange Elementary school building for school year 2019-20, so that extensive renovations can be made to the Allisonville Elementary building.

A new school community day for students and families is scheduled for April 11 from 5-6:00 pm for all elementary schools and March 12 from 7-8:30 pm for all middle schools. There will be open houses at every elementary and middle school at these respective times. (please note: Willow Lake Elementary will have a Meet and Greet at the CEC-8550 Woodfield Crossing Blvd. and Clearwater Elementary families will meet and greet at John Strange during the elementary school designated date and time). Please plan to join us at these events so that your student can become familiar with their new school home, meet the principal, and meet other students and families. 

As a new enrollee we invite you to check our website often for information and updates regarding the upcoming school year. Information about bus routes, immunizations, lunch schedules and more, can all be found right here on our website https://www.msdwt.k12.in.us/

We are extremely excited for all that Washington Township has to offer for our students, and we are happy to have you join our school community.
