    Before You Register:

    • Identify three school choices. Lowell is split into two zones – Zone 1 and Zone 2. You may select a school in the zone where you live, or you may select one of the citywide schools. Please refer to the zone map and zone chart for more details. Please note that zones only apply for students in grades K-8 and students in grades 9-12 attend Lowell High School.

    • Consider the starting and ending times for each school, as well as your needs for before and after school care.

    • Gather documents needed for registration including:

      • If you are living with a Lowell resident, you will need to complete a third party affidavit. Please have a conversation with us if you are unable to produce sufficient documentation or if your housing is insecure. We abide by McKinney-Vento.
