Enrollment & Registration

Welcome to the Norwalk City School District!

From preschool through high school, our school district is proud to offer some of the best educational choices to students and families in our area.

Over 300 teachers and staff members are at work supporting the academic needs of more than 2,600 students at our 6 schools.


Norwalk City School District is excited to announce that starting with the 2021-2022 school year, we have partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service, to enroll new K-12 students online.

If you have a Preschool student, please click here to go to the Preschool page for an application. If your student is accepted into the Preschool program, you will complete your forms with the Preschool Director, not FinalForms.

If you are a RESIDENT of Norwalk City School District:

  1. If you do not have an existing FinalForms account, please click here to create one. If you do not have access to a computer or smart phone, please contact the building your child(ren) will attend to set up an appointment in which you will be provided a computer and any assistance needed. Parents with existing FinalForms accounts should click here to log in and fill out the online enrollment packet.

  2. After you submit your forms online, you MUST call for an appointment to complete registration.
