Kindergarten Enrollment 

To register for kindergarten for the upcoming school year, children must turn 5 prior to September 1.  Children who turn five between September 1 and December 31 will need to pass a Gilbert district screening before being admitted to kindergarten.

To register a student in the Gilbert Public Schools, parents must bring to their neighborhood school (This documentation is mandatory before your child may start school):
  1. 1.  Birth Certificate:  this must be a state or county issued original or certified copy.
  2. 2.  Proof of Residency:  in the form of a current utility bill, house closing papers  or rental contract.
  3. 3.  Current Immunizations:  please contact the school health office for information regarding immunizations.
If you are not sure which school is your neighborhood school, you may contact any school for boundary information or view our School Boundary Maps.

Gilbert Public Schools is an open enrollment district, if you are interested in your child attending Kindergarten at a school that is not your neighborhood school you can apply through open enrollment.  Please visit our Enrollment Information Center to learn more and enroll now.
