Kindergarten and New Student Registration Open for 2021-2022 School Year

  • Registration for new students is now open for the 2021-2022 school year. 

    The Winnetka Public Schools serves students in Kindergarten through the eighth grade. Kindergarten through fourth grade students attend Crow Island School, Greeley School and Hubbard Woods School. Fifth and sixth grade students attend The Skokie School and seventh and eighth grade students attend Carleton Washburne School. We are delighted that you are considering enrolling your child in the District.

    The Winnetka Public Schools Board approved new elementary school attendance boundaries at its meeting on October 22, 2019, to form a long-term solution to address the enrollment imbalance in the District. These new boundaries are effective immediately for students newly registering. For more information on redistricting, click here.
