    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 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
