Now is the time for Milwaukee families to choose a kindergarten or Head Start program to start their 3-, 4- or 5-year olds on the path to success. Official enrollment for kindergarten in Milwaukee Public Schools opens Saturday, February 3 at the MPS Kindergarten Enrollment Fair from 9 a.m. to noon at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, 2300 W. Highland Ave. in Milwaukee. Enrollment applications can be completed at the Enrollment Fair, online at mpsmke.com/enroll, any MPS school, Welcome Center or the MPS Enrollment Center, 5225 W. Vliet St., Milwaukee.
Families can now schedule school visits to see MPS’ many outstanding kindergarten and Head Start programs in action. Many options are available for children entering 3-year-old, 4-year-old, and 5-year-old kindergarten.
Kindergarten enrollment will remain open until March 4. Enrolling prior to this deadline improves the chances of children being placed in their first-choice school. Families who choose their school preferences prior to the opening of enrollment are well prepared to complete the enrollment application.
