Student Registration

Welcome to Warwick Public Schools! Our district consists of the Warwick Early Childhood Center at John Brown Francis, thirteen Elementary Schools, two Middle Schools, two High Schools, and the Warwick Area Career and Technical Center. In most cases the school a child will attend is decided by the child’s home address.* The child’s parent or guardian should come to our offices to register a student for school if at all possible.

Students are now welcome to register for the 2019-20 school year for Grades 1-12. Kindergarten Registration for the 2019-20 School year began on January 14, 2019. Children enrolling in Kindergarten must be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2019.

You can now begin registering your child for school on the web. Begin at It’s fastest to start the process online before coming to the Central Registration office, but if you cannot get online we have computers for you to use in our office as well.  If you need help with registration or have other questions, please call us at 734-3040.

El registro también está disponible en español.

Once you have finished online, the site will ask you to make a time to come in and complete the process in our office at the Gorton Administration Building, 69 Draper Ave, Warwick RI 02889.
