Welcome to Saskatoon Public Schools! We look forward to meeting you and your child/children. Families typically register students at the school in their neighbourhood. Registration forms are available by download at the link below or on the registration page of each school website.
Elementary schools offer kindergarten to Grade 8 classes for students who are five to 13 years of age. Collegiates (high schools) offer Grade 9 to Grade 12 classes for students 14 to 21 years of age.
Choosing a School
Students typically register at the school that serves the neighbourhood where they live. Elementary students may be registered at any public school regardless of residence however transportation is not available to those who live outside of a school's designated area. Enrolment at Ernest Linder School in the Hampton Village neighbourhood and Chief Whitecap in the Stonebridge neighbourhood is open only to students who live in those neighbourhoods.
Collegiates for students in Grade 9-12 operate with open boundaries. Students may register at the collegiate of their choice.
Saskatoon Public Schools also offers several specialized programs:
Visit the Locate a School page and School Locator Tool to find the school(s) that serve your neighbourhood. A complete list of elementary and high schools is available here.
Registration for Kindergarten begins in January for the next school year. Children must be five years old by January 31 of the school year in which they begin Kindergarten. For example, to start Kindergarten in September 2021, your child must be five years old by January 31, 2022.
