Student Enrollment

  • Registration Steps

    Students must register at their boundary school, according to the attendance area boundaries. Use the School Boundaries link to locate your boundary school, by entering your address. The elementary, middle and high school that serve your address appear with links to maps and school websites. Please contact your boundary school for information about registration and bus routes. If you need assistance determining which school your student will attend, please contact the Kent School District Transportation Department at (253) 373-7442.

    Kent School District is part of a regional kindergarten registration initiative with Seattle, Tukwila, Renton, Highline, Federal Way and Auburn. Registration in all seven districts begins on January 17, 2017. Registration packets are available at every elementary school in the Kent School District.
