At Missoula County Public Schools, we want parents and students to have the information and tools they need to ensure their transition to a new school is smooth and comfortable.
Registering New Students
Enrollment into an MCPS school is based on the address of your primary residence. Not sure what school your student should attend? Visit infoFinder to search by your home address and find out which schools serve that address.
During the school year, parents who wish to enroll students in grades K-8 should go directly to the elementary or middle school that will serve their student. During summer break, parents can go to the MCPS Administration Building located at 215 S. 6th St. W. to complete the enrollment.
Parents who wish to enroll high school students in Missoula should go directly to the attendance area high school. For more information about high school enrollment, contact each high school directly.
