New Student Registration for Santa Monica and Malibu Residents

Registering your child in a school for the first time can be relatively easy if you are prepared.Following are a few
guidelines to help you:

  1. Registration takes place at your neighborhood school. Call the school directly for enrollment dates. (In order to find your school, click here, or call 310-450-8338, ext. 70217.)

  2. You will need to verify your address. Click here for examples of proof of residency. Other documents such as a driver's license or business mail may be requested to confirm your address.

  3. You will need to verify your child's birth date with a birth certificate or passport.

  4. You will need to bring complete immunization records for all students and a doctor's verification of a physical examination for Kindergarten and First Graders. Up-to-date immunizations must be completed before your child may enter the classroom. Click here to see immunization requirements.

Your school of residence will provide you with a packet of forms and information which must be completed and
returned. Enrollment requirements may vary slightly at each school.
