New Student Enrollment

Welcome to the Ellensburg School District! 

We are currently accepting new student enrollment applications for all grade levels through our online student enrollment portal for both the current 2019 – 2020 School Year, and the upcoming 2020 – 2021 School Year.  (For families who are enrolling a Kindergarten student for the 2020 – 2021 School Year, please use the Kindergarten Registration link).    

The Ellensburg School District has three elementary schools – Lincoln, Mt. Stuart and Valley View – serving students in grade levels kindergarten through 5th grade.  In the enrollment portal, kindergarten students are represented as grade K1; and on the school selection drop down, students in grade levels K1 – 5th are represented by ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.  Parents/guardians will be provided an opportunity to select their top two choices for which of the three elementary schools they want their student to attend on the Supplementary Enrollment Form I.     

Morgan Middle School serves students in grades 6 – 8; and the Ellensburg High School serves students in grades 9 – 12.  In addition, we have two Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) programs; our PLC program serves students in grades 6 – 12; and Excel High School serves students in grades 9 – 12. Admission into these programs is based on referral from our comprehensive schools.  For more information on our ALE programs, please contact Jared Bronkema, ALE Program Principal at (509) 925-8181.
