How to enroll your student in the School District of New Berlin.

Welcome to the School District of New Berlin!

The School District of New Berlin offers an exceptional educational environment for students, involving them in academic projects, co-curricular activities and community service opportunities through the school year. Academic growth of all children is the focus of our K-12 school district.

New Berlin offers all-day 5K kindergarten classes. Starting children off right - being prepared to meet their individual needs, understanding their individual personal development, and preparing to work with and for them as they grow and learn - is the primary goal of our early childhood and kindergarten programs.


Enroll your new student by following these steps:


STEP 1:  DETERMINE THE STUDENT'S ELIGIBILITY

Enrollment in the School District of New Berlin is open to all school-age children residing within the established boundaries of the school district and to those students from other districts who have been accepted through Open Enrollment options. School Boundary Map  (Please note:  some neighborhoods, although within city of New Berlin boundaries, may lie within school district boundaries other than those of the School District of New Berlin.)

Parents registering their children in the School District of New Berlin must provide the child's proof of residence, proof of immunizations, birth certificate, and some grade levels require additional forms as shown below:

  • Proof of residency documents (all grades)

  • Proof of immunizations (all grades)

Please call your resident school to make an appointment to present these documents.


Immunizations: Wisconsin state law (252.04) requires that all students in grades K-12 be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, measles and rubella. Written evidence of completed basic and booster immunizations, including the day, month and year is required. This requirement will be waived for an individual student only for health, religious or personal conviction reasons. If students are not fully immunized upon admittance to school, they must have received at least one dose of any vaccine required for their grade within 30 days of admission. They must remain on schedule, and complete all required immunizations within one year.
