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 requires students  be at least five years old by August 1, 2020 to start Kindergarten in August 2020. NOTE: If your child will be five years old after August 1 and on or before September 1, you may submit an appeal for your child to be considered for Kindergarten enrollment. See your assigned elementary school principal for more information.

Please take the following required documents for enrollment (Grades 1-12) to the school where your student will attend and speak with the administrative assistant in the office about your intent to enroll:

  • 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.

Upon determining your assigned school, you will go to that location to enroll your child.  Please note that for the 2019-20 school year, all Allisonville Elementary students (including Kindergarten students) will be attending school at the John Strange Elementary location as their school building is renovated.  All new Allisonville Elementary families should go to the John Strange location to enroll their children. 

As a new enrollee we invite you to check our website often for information and updates regarding the upcoming school year (e.g., bus routes, immunizations, lunch schedules, and more).

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.
