Welcome to the Winnetka Public Schools!

Kindergarten student

Online registration will open November 16, 2022, for Incoming Kindergarteners & New Students for the 2023-2024 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.

Registration for incoming kindergarteners and students new to The Winnetka Public Schools in 2023-2024 is now open. This early registration (pre-registration process) assists the District in communicating important information to new families, and adequately plan for kindergarten staffing and classrooms. Children who will be five-years-old on or before September 1, 2023, are eligible to enroll. For more information on our Kindergarten program, click here.
