Kindergarten Registration

Registration for the 2022-2023 School Year is Open

We're so excited that you have chosen Rio Rancho Public Schools for your kindergarten-aged child. Kindergarten is an exciting time for our young students and we know that we'll enjoy having them in our classrooms so we can ignite their potential.

Online Registration:

To register your kindergartener with Rio Rancho Public Schools, you'll need to register your child as either a New Student or a Returning Student. If your child attended Shining Stars Preschool, you will register them as a Returning Student. If your child has never attended a Rio Rancho Public School, then you will register them as a New Student.

During the registration process, you'll be required to upload all required documentation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is my child old enough for kindergarten? Under state law, children enrolling for kindergarten for the 2022-2023 School Year must reach their 5th birthday by 12:01 a.m. on September 1, 2022.

  • Is Kindergarten a half-day or full-day program? All RRPS schools have full-day kindergarten programs.

  • Can I register my child for Shining Stars Preschool with this process? No. Shining Stars Preschool has a separate lottery based admissions and registration process.

Kindergarten Round-Ups:

Please upload all documents online when doing your child's online registration.

Kindergarten Round-Up gives parents of Kindergartners a special time to visit the school and complete enrollment. Not able to attend? You may come to the school during regular office hours after Kindergarten Round-Up.
