Schools at MAPS

We have four elementary schools (grades K-5) at Marquette Area Public Schools (MAPS): Cherry Creek Elementary, Graveraet Elementary, Sandy Knoll Elementary and Superior Hills Elementary. If you are not sure which one is your resident school, you can call our Superintendent’s office at 906-225-4200 for assistance. We have one middle school (grades 6-8): Bothwell Middle School (BMS). We have two high schools (grades 9-12): Marquette Senior High School (MSHS) and Marquette Alternative High School (MAHS).

Resident Families (families who live within the MAPS District boundaries)

Thank you for enrolling your child at MAPS. Once you have completed online registration, you will receive a call from your resident elementary school, BMS, MSHS, or MAHS to schedule an appointment to finalize enrollment. Enrollment must be finalized before sending your child to school. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to meeting with you.

Non-Resident Families (families who live outside the MAPS District boundaries but within the Marquette-Alger RESA)

If you are a non-resident family wishing to enroll your student at MAPS, you are required to submit a completed School of Choice Application while the School of Choice window is open prior to completing this online registration. Application forms may be obtained at any MAPS school building, at the Superintendent’s office, or downloaded from the MAPS website. Completed elementary School of Choice Applications should be submitted to the Superintendent’s office; middle school applications should be submitted to BMS; and high school applications should be submitted to either MSHS or MAHS.

Once your School of Choice Application has been approved, you should complete online registration.

Families Moving to Area

If you are moving to the area but do not yet have a Marquette resident address, please wait until you have a Marquette resident address to complete this online enrollment application.

Kindergarten/Junior Kindergarten Age Requirement

If you are registering for kindergarten, please note that according to Michigan Law (MCL 380.1447) children are required to be five years old on or before December 1 of the school calendar year in which the child attends school to attend kindergarten. This minimum age requirement is the same for entering junior kindergarten as it is for entering kindergarten.

Registration

Complete the Online Enrollment Application process.

This is an application only. Enrollment will not be complete until the required documents have been submitted.

For elementary families who live within the District boundaries, please select your resident school on the application under “Expected School to Enroll into” even if you plan to make an in-district transfer request. You can request and submit an In-District Transfer Request Form at your appointment to finalize enrollment. The preferential deadline for in-district transfer requests for the next school year is May 14.

For elementary School of Choice families, please select unknown under “Expected School to Enroll into” even if you plan to request a specific school. The elementary School of Choice Application includes an area where you can select your preferred building(s).
