Registration Information

 
 
Due to school closures during Covid-19, the Jersey City Public Schools has been doing online registration for schools to maintain safety of students, parents and staff. Please bear with us as we come together as a community during these difficult times.
 
 
Please note, for Students New to the United States:
 
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Multilingual Intake Center (MIC) is currently not available for walk-in registration for students entering the country.  If your child comes from a home whose primary language is other than English and/or has recently arrived from a foreign country, you are to register to your child following the Jersey City Public Schools online registration form located on the JCPS website.  As soon as we are able to reopen the MIC, you will receive an appointment for you and your child to visit the MIC and bring the appropriate registration documentation that will complete your child's registration and placement.  
 
Where to go:
 
Parents may register students at their assigned school Monday through Friday from 9 to 11 and 1:00 to 2:30. For more info, click here. To find your assigned school, call 201-915-6111 or 201-915-6201.
 
For more information on High School Registration, call the Secondary Division, 201-413-6934
 
Students who are New to the United States: If you are registering a child who speaks a language other than English or who has moved to the US from another country, you must first go to the Multilingual Intake Center (even if the child is an English speaker), so that your child can be appropriately placed in their home school. See this information sheet about the hours of operation, what you need to bring with you and who must go to the Multilingual Intake Center to start the registration process.

Open Enrollment: Students are expected to attend the school for which they are assigned. Assignments are based on a student's home address. Parents may request permission to enroll their child at a different school if there are compelling reasons to do so.
 
Parents interested in obtaining such permission must complete an Open Enrollment Form and submit it to the appropriate Division Director.
The District considers each requests in terms of the rationale for the request, the availability of space at the requested school and the impact such a request might have on students or schools.
