Registering for Ed Smith Kindergarten

Families can register online between February 1-March 31 for the following school year.

Students who are currently enrolled (active) in a Syracuse City School District- Pre-K or affiliated Pre-Kindergarten program do not have to re-register for Kindergarten. They will “roll up” to Kindergarten and be assigned to their home school (the school zoned for the student’s home address), based on seat availability. Parents will receive a letter in the mail, which confirms their child’s home school assignment for Kindergarten. However, if a student was withdrawn from the Pre-K program without completing the school year, they must be re-registered to attend Kindergarten.

Transferring to Ed Smith

The SCSD Registration office will be able to assist you. We are happy to meet with you to answer questions about the school at any time.

Feel free to attend our school concerts, family fun nights and other Ed Smith events throughout the year to get a feel of the school. We look forward to welcoming your family into the Ed Smith community!
