    Welcome to Farmington Public Schools!

    (watch our welcome video! https://youtu.be/uAtfuQ7XZGA )

    We are happy you are here!  You can become a member of our fine school district in one of the following ways.

     

    District Residents

    If you reside within our District boundaries, you can enroll your children at any time. Farmington Public Schools includes Farmington, Farmington Hills and a portion of West Bloomfield. You can verify District boundaries by viewing our District Map.  If you are not sure which school your child should attend within our school district, please refer to our District Street Guide (Shows school assignments specific to street addresses).

    Farmington Public Schools is not an open enrollment school district. You must live within the state defined District boundaries to enroll.  The State of Michigan bases residency on your domicile, typically identified as the place of permanent residence, where you sleep at night.  The only exception would be those students participating in Section 105 Schools of Choice.  Please contact the Office of K-12 Instruction at 248-426-4692 for Schools of Choice information or click the below link.   

     

    Schools of Choice

    Please see our Schools of Choice Section Intra-District (Farmington Public Schools' Residents) and Section 105 (Oakland County Residents) for further information or call 248-426-4692.

       

    Where to Enroll

    Enrollment takes place at the school building where the parent/legal guardian's child will attend based on their address.  See Boundary Maps or Street Guide to determine which school your child will attend.  

    If the parent/legal guardian does not own or rent their dwelling in which they are living, residency verification must begin at Central Office.  Please call 248-489-3349 to schedule an appointment.  Central Office's address is 32500 Shiawassee St., Farmington, MI 48336.  When the residency verification is complete, the parent/legal guardian will need to register the child at their assigned school.

    Vision Screening – Kindergarten

    Michigan Law (Public Health Code, Act 368, and Michigan School Code, Act 291) requires a vision screening for kindergarten entrance. 

    Vision screening done in preschool by a health department technician or a doctor's office fulfills this requirement. 

    Oakland County Health Division offers free vision screening for County residents.  Call 248-424-7070 for an appointment. 

     

    Records from Previous Schools

    Parent/legal guardian will be asked to supply the student's records from the previous school or sign a release for a request of the records.
