Determining which school your child will attend is the first step in the enrollment process. Murfreesboro City Schools has a user-friendly online tool that allows you to input your address and find out which school zone you reside in. Use this LINK to identify your school zone.

Once you've identified your child's school, it's time to gather the necessary documentation for enrollment. Generally, you will need the following:

  1. Proof of Residency: This could be a lease agreement, mortgage statement, or utility bill in your name showing your residence within the school zone. Acceptable items can be found HERE

  2. Child's Birth Certificate: A copy of your child's birth certificate is typically required to verify their age.

  3. Immunization Records: Ensure your child's immunizations are up-to-date and provide a copy of their immunization records.

  4. Guardian Identification: A valid photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport, to verify guardianship.

Additional documentation may be required based on individual circumstances, so it's advisable to check with the specific school for any additional requirements
