Welcome to Bexley Schools!
This is an exciting step in your child's future, and we look forward to having your child be part of our school community.
Unique opportunities in the district include K-12 world language instruction, K-12 arts and music programs, K-12 librarians/media specialists, and dedicated school counselors in all five buildings. Over 22 Advanced Placement (AP) courses approved by the College Board are offered in a variety of areas. AP courses serve as a measure of curriculum standards for college readiness. The district also offers neighborhood schools and values small class sizes.
A resident who is new to Bexley Schools should contact the school that the child will attend. Parents/guardians may become acquainted with the schools by reviewing the district's website or by contacting the school or Central Office.
Bexley offers all-day kindergarten for all students who turn five years of age on or before August 1, the year of enrollment. Click here for information about kindergarten readiness: Ohio Department of Education Kindergarten Readiness Checklist.
Early entrance to kindergarten, for children who turn five years of age after August 1, may be a way to meet the needs of the exceptional child who is both academically ready and developmentally mature when compared with other children of the same age.
Ohio law says that a child can be evaluated for early entrance upon the request of the child's parent/guardian. Very few children meet the requirements for early entrance. For more information contact Gifted Coordinator Colette Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org, 614.231.7611.
Parents/guardians of new students will need to complete student demographic, emergency and medical information for their child in our online registration system and will need to submit required documents that will be maintained by their child's school.
Parents/guardians may complete online registration from home or may attend their child's school during regular school hours: 8:00am - 3:00pm. Click Here To complete the Online Registration for New Students to the District.
Once online registration has been reviewed, you will be contacted to schedule a meeting to bring in the required documents for enrollment. See the list of required documents below. Please note you must have ALL documents in order to complete the registration process. Should you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact Dr. Harley Williams at Harley.Williams@BexleySchools.org
