How to Enroll in School


Students entering school in Castle Rock School District are enrolled at the school building where they will be attending. The schools open for enrollment of new students generally during the last two weeks of August. The enrollment process involves completing a registration form and testing for student placement. Fees or costs required for the student's coursework are payable after classes begin.

New students entering after the start of the school year will begin attending classes within one to three days after registration is completed, in order to allow teachers time to prepare for placement of the new student.

It is helpful to bring previous school report cards and any other records you may have from your child's previous school. The administrative office will request any additional records needed from the student's previous school or district.
