Student Registration

Registration information for the 2023-2024 school year will be posted in late December.
The Cranford Public School District serves students in grades K through 12.  This school schedule provides start and end times for all grades in each school. You may view the school zone map here if you are unsure of your child’s home school.  Your child must be five years old by October 1, 2022 and a Cranford resident to be eligible for kindergarten during the 2022-2023 school year. 
Kindergarten is provided to students as a half day session, either am or pm. Please find a list of local child care providers who offer various before and after care options. You may visit their respective websites or call them directly for additional information and pricing. 
The District also offers two (2) full day, tuition based kindergarten classes; one is located in Bloomingdale Avenue School and the other is located in Walnut Avenue School.  Students will be selected for the 2023-2024 full day kindergarten classes based on a lottery that will open on December 14, 2022 and run through January 4, 2023. 
Effective February 1, 2022 registration/enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year for children who are new to the Cranford Public Schools and entering grades K through 12 will be conducted virtually and/or by appointment at our central office located in the Lincoln School building (rear entrance) at 132 Thomas Street.   Please send an email to the email address listed below to begin the registration/enrollment process and include in the email your child's name, date of birth, receiving school, grade level for the 2022-2023 school year and a phone number where we can reach you during the day:
