School of Attendance based on Parent/Legal Guardian Address (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 unsure 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.  

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 contact khristian.alexander@fpsk12.net or 248-426-4692.

Young 5's

Farmington Public Schools will be offering Young 5s programming for our youngest learners for the 2024-25 school year.

This free full-day program may be a great option for families with Kindergarten-eligible students (turning 5 by December 1, 2024) who were born between June 1 - December 1, 2019 looking for an option that provides extra time for their child to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

Young 5s provides an additional choice for families in addition to our excellent Kindergarten experience at our elementary schools. The schools that host the Young 5s program will be determined based on space as well as interest in this program for a particular elementary building. Transportation is provided for the Young 5s program if the student is attending the program in their home elementary school.

If your child attends the Young 5s program in a school different from their home school, parents will be responsible for transporting their child to/from school.

If you feel that this might be a good fit for your child, please complete this form to provide additional information regarding your interest in your child participating in the Young 5s experience. After you fill out the form, you will be contacted with more information about the program. Please continue to enroll your child in Kindergarten in your home school.
