Enroll In School

  • ** Posted May 22, 2020 **

    On-Line Pre-Enrollment is now available for NEW students to Farmington Public Schools for grades K - 12 and Visions Unlimited

    During this time of social distancing it is important to honor our community's ability to stay home and at the same time, move forward with enrollment plans for next year.  

    We are looking forward to having your child(ren) attend our wonderful district.  Farmington Public Schools offers a well-rounded education to all of our students.  Whether your child is a scholar, an artist, has a passion for technology, a musician, a non-English speaker, or an athlete, we have a program for your child.  Our parents, staff, and the community are partners in the educational success of our students and hold the District to high standards for each and every student to achieve their personal best.  

    This new process will allow parents to pre-enroll students for the 2020-2021 school year and upload required documentation to a secure site.

    The website address to begin the pre-enrollment process is: https://mistar.oakland.k12.mi.us/farmington/PreEnrollment/

    For the 2020/2021 school year, this pre-enrollment process will not pertain to new students enrolling into Farmington STEAM Academy.   For students who were notified and accepted their lottery spot into the Farmington STEAM Academy for next year, an email was sent out on May 22, 2020 with enrollment directions.  

    For any questions, please email info@fpsk12.net.

    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).
