Enrollment

Around 50% of SIE students attend on contract from outside our attendance zone. Shreve Island accepts contract students each year based on available space. The contract outlines expectations for students and parents.

 

It takes a village of supportive parents to make a successful school. We are looking for committed families that will get involved in making our school the best it can be. Together we really can help every child reach his or her potential. 

 

Kindergarten Enrollment

Each year we accept around fifty new Kindergarten students on contract from outside our attendance zone. Priority is given to Kindergartners with siblings already attending SIE.  We mail out our acceptance letters the same time the Magnet Schools on the Friday before Spring Break.

Out-of-District Kindergarten Registration begins Monday, January 27th at 8:00 AM. 

Children should be 5 years old by September 30th to enroll in Kindergarten.

For Kindergarten students living in the Shreve Island attendance zone:
