    Enrollment Information

    Visit the Seattle Public School enrollment page for detailed information and deadlines. After you enroll your student and if you live within the attendance area, you will be assigned to Whittier Elementary. Visit district's Address Look Up feature to verify if your residence is within the Whittier attendance area. If you live outside the boundaries, you can still apply to be added to the wait list.


    We provide the following programs for Kindergarteners and their families to learn about school before entering Kindergarten:

    • Jump Start - Every August, most Seattle elementary and K-8 schools offer a free week-long program to help new kindergartners get ready and excited about starting school. Read more about Jump Start at Whittier Elementary School.
    • Family Connections - Before starting school, each new kindergartner's family is offered the chance to meet with their student's teacher to begin building a home-school partnership. 

    Our usual practice before the start of school is to offer each new kindergartner's family the chance to meet with their student's teacher. The goal is to foster a good home-school partnership. Watch School Tour video.
