Enrollment Information for 2024-2025

HPE Mathmasters

Families with children who will be 4 years old by September 1, 2024 can apply now for the Highland Park Elementary (HPE) Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program for next fall. Children who will be 5 by September 1, 2024 can apply for Kindergarten. The deadline for applying is Friday, February 23, 2024.

If your child is currently enrolled in grades Pre-K to Grade 4 at HPE you do not need to apply for next year. All students in grades Pre-K to Grade 4 will automatically have a spot at HPE for next year.

The district mailed letters to families of fifth graders to let you know in which middle school your child has a reserved seat for the upcoming school year. The middle school assignments are based on the family address. If you are planning to have your child attend that middle school, you do not need to take any action. You will receive a letter in the spring with information about how to register your student for classes at their middle school. If you want your 5th grader to attend a different SPPS middle school or if you do not live within the City of Saint Paul, you will need to complete an application.

Attending open house events is a great way to learn more about SPPS middle school options. For a complete list of middle school open houses, visit spps.org/openhouses.

The 2024-2025 School Choice Priority Enrollment deadline for grades Pre-K – 12 is Friday, February 23, 2024.

If you have questions about the application process, please visit Student Placement Center or call 651-632-3760.
