• Student Enrollment

    Welcome to the Yakima School District! For those of you who have a child entering the school system for the first time, get ready! You will be amazed at the amount of learning that takes place!  We have a great combination of talented teachers and staff to help your students become learners for life!

Enrollment Procedure

  • The District offers dedicated enrollment periods during which you may register your student for the upcoming school year. The dates for these enrollment periods will be posted on this website as they come up. The District also accepts new registrations throughout the regular school year. During either period, you may register new and returning students at their neighborhood school, or at the District Student and Family Center (105 N 4th Ave).

    YSD has 14 elementary schools, 5 middle schools, and 4 high schools (view school directory). The high schools offer open enrollment for resident students on a first-come, first-served basis. Elementary and middle school enrollment is determined by the home address of the student. Each elementary school and each middle school has a defined neighborhood boundary. Visit our School Neighborhood Boundaries page to view a map of our school locations and boundaries.

    Non-Resident High School Applications

    If your family does not live within the Yakima School District boundaries, you may apply for consideration for enrollment. Please contact the Student and Family Center if you are out-of-district (please do not contact the high schools).

    Choice Transfer Requests

    A choice transfer request is required if your family lives within the Yakima School District boundaries and you would like to have your child attend a non-YSD school. You can submit a choice transfer request through the OSPI website here: https://eds.ospi.k12.wa.us/ChoiceTransferRequest.
