Enroll In School / Residency

  •  

     

    Welcome to Farmington Public Schools!

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

     

    District Residents

    If you reside within our District boundaries, you are able to 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 which schools are assigned to specific street addresses).

    Farmington Public Schools is not an open enrollment school district. You must live within the state defined District boundaries in order 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.  

       

    Where to Enroll

    Students enroll at the school building they are assigned based on their address.  See Boundary Maps or Street Guide to determine which school your child/children would 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, 32500 Shiawassee St., Farmington, MI 48336. Please call 248-489-3349 to schedule an appointment.
