Enrollment and registration

  • Enrolling new students

    Whatever the reason you’re enrolling your child with Willmar Public Schools, we’re excited you want to partner with us in your student’s education.

    At this time, enrollment is open to all students in grades K-12 new to Willmar Public Schools for the 2020-21 school year. To complete the enrollment process, parents/guardians should register their student with Central Registration at the District Office, found at the Willmar Education and Arts Center, which is located at 611 5th St. SW, Willmar. Registration hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Schools do not handle enrollment and registration of new students.
