Welcome to Vancouver Public Schools! We’re glad you’re here.

One of the oldest districts in the state of Washington, Vancouver Public Schools has a rich history. The close-knit community of Vancouver, which has long supported education, has a small-town feel and big-city amenities.

If you’re new to the district, follow these steps to enroll your child and prepare for a VPS educational experience. If you have additional questions, please call the school or contact us.

Graphic: Step 2: ProgramsLearn about the district’s many programs designed to give students and families choices. Note the timeframe for applying. If the deadline has passed, please contact the school at which the program is located to inquire about availability.

Students who are accepted to a special program are guaranteed enrollment at the school for as long as they remain in the program. Everyone else wishes to attend a school other than the one that is zoned for their residence must obtain a boundary exception.

Graphic: Step 3: RegistrationVisit our registering for school page for all the details on registration.

If the student will require special education services, be sure to let the new school know and provide a copy of the most current individualized education plan, if available. School staff will ask questions that will help make sure your child is placed in an appropriate special education program.
