 Welcome to the Manchester Public School System, where you can complete 100% of your registration online!

Manchester Head Start and Preschool requires a separate application process. Information is below.

**If you are a current MPS staff member, please let the registrars know prior to registering your student to avoid the merging of staff and parent accounts in the system.

**Any child who will be five years of age on or before January 1, 2024 and meets all residency requirements is eligible to begin kindergarten at the start of the 2023-2024 school year.  We want to make the registration process as seamless as possible and hope the information on this page answers all of your questions.
