Grades 1-12 Enrollment

Enrollment in the Portland Public Schools is now open for the 2022-2023 school year. Students in grades 1 through 12 can now enroll online using the new Online Enrollment Application process. Parents/guardians can provide their child's information electronically, and save time and paperwork. 

How to Register Online: 

To enroll your grade 1-12 student, register through our Online Registration Portal:

If your student is currently enrolled in the Portland Public Schools, it is not necessary for you to re-enroll for the next school year. Your student's enrollment will automatically "roll up" to their next grade and school according to your primary home address.

Enrollment in grades 9-12 (high school) is not by neighborhood; it is by choice. We have three high schools to choose from: Casco Bay High School, Deering High School, and Portland High School. You can contact the school of your choice directly to register. Casco Bay High School has a lottery for enrollment, so please contact the school directly prior to enrolling online.
