2020-21 Enrollment for New Students




    Registration in the Menlo Park City School District begins with residency.  Please verify your residence is in the Menlo Park City School District attendance boundaries prior to registration using the SchoolLocator link.  Once you have secured housing within our District attendance boundaries, we can register your child.  Registration is open all year long so we can begin once you move.


    Please complete the steps below:


    1.  Create a PowerSchool Enrollment account

    All MPCSD families must have a PowerSchool Enrollment account in order to register students. 



    2.  Complete 2020-21 New Student online registration packet

    Once you have a PowerSchool account, begin the registration process by entering your student's information and follow the screens to enroll for School Year 2020-21.


    3.  Submit the required documents

    At the end of the online registration packet, you will have the opportunity to upload (PDF format) your required 6 documents:

    • Birth Certificate or a statement by the local registrar or county recorder certifying the date of birth, passport, or duly attested baptism certificate.  When none of the foregoing is obtainable, the parent/guardian may provide an affidavit (Education Code 48002) 
    • Proof of immunizations received to date. This document must include the student's first and last name and date of birth. For more detailed information about immunizations for school, please visit the Shots for School website at shotsforschool.org
    • Parent/guardian picture ID
    • Proof of residency in the form of: Current rental property contract or lease, escrow papers, current year property tax bill, property tax payment receipt, lease payment receipt or declaration of residency executed by the parent or legal guardian of the student

    If you choose not to submit your documents online, you will be required to schedule an appointment with the Registrar to submit in person. Please call (650) 321-7140 x5600 to schedule your registration appointment. Registration appointments are held at the District Office, 181 Encinal Avenue, Atherton – adjacent to the Encinal School campus.
