Student Registration

Welcome to the Saratoga Springs City School District! The District has an outstanding reputation and a long history of academic excellence. We are pleased you have chosen to become a member of our school community. The District has six elementary schools for grades kindergarten to five, one middle school for grades six to eight, and one high school for grades nine to 12. If you do not know whether your residence is within Saratoga Springs City School District boundaries, contact the District Registrar at (518) 583-4789.

Attendance Zones 

Within the six elementary zones, there are five flex attendance zones in order to balance class sizes across the District. Please note that elementary schools are assigned by the district and all attendance zones should be confirmed with the School Registrar. Click here to search your address on our District Attendance Zone Map. 

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration begins each year in January for the following school year. Please note that your child must be five years old as of December 1 for the school year that you are registering for. If your child was previously registered for Pre-School Special Education services, LifeWorks, or the UPK program, you may be eligible to submit a condensed registration form. The Registrar’s Office will notify the families who are eligible. If you previously submitted an online census form, you must still submit the kindergarten registration forms.

Registration target dates are indicated below. Please submit your online registration during your corresponding time frame based on what letter your last name starts with.
