    New Student Enrollment is now open for our future 2024-25 school year. Please review the information displayed below. 

    IMPORTANT: The New Student Enrollment process is intended for new students enrolling in EMS ISD for the first time. This enrollment process is also intended for incoming Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students who have not attended EMS ISD previously. To ensure that the student resides in an EMS ISD attendance zone, it is a requirement that families verify residency prior to the start of school. 

    To verify that your student resides within EMS ISD and to determine which campuses your residence is zoned to, please click on the following link to access the 2024-25 Attendance Zone Finder. This tool will help you locate the specific campuses associated with your address within EMS ISD.

    Students eligible to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year must be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2024.

    Students who are currently enrolled and attending EMS ISD or who previously attended EMS ISD and are returning, must follow the enrollment process for Returning Student Verification
