Student Registration


Welcome to Ames Schools! We’re glad you’ve chosen or are considering Ames as your home.

The Registrar’s Office is your first source of information about enrolling students—whether your child is starting kindergarten or your family is new to the school district—to answer your questions about which elementary school your child will attend, open enrollment, home schooling, and more.

The Board has set boundaries for attendance centers throughout the District. All elementary resident students shall attend school in their neighborhood elementary building. 

Student Registration hours:

Monday through Friday

9 – 11:30 a.m.
