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 began February 6, 2019 and will continue on weekdays from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the schools. Students must be at least five years old by August 1, 2019 to start Kindergarten in August 2019. 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.

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.

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.  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.
