• Schools in the Center of Your Community

    Great schools, caring teachers, proud parents and state-of-the-art school buildings. That’s what Cincinnati Public Schools offers your family right in the center of your community.

    Serving grades from preschool to sixth (with a few offering grades 7-8, too), our neighborhood elementary schools are Community Learning Centers that give students the skills and confidence they need to become leaders when their time comes.

    Our neighborhood schools go beyond academics to support the whole child with health services, after-school programs, family support activities and more.

    Students are assigned to neighborhood elementary schools according to their home addresses. The district determines the boundaries for each school. To find the elementary school assignment for a specific address, use our online Interactive Cropper Map System in School Finder.

    Registration Details

    Parents/guardians must update registration information at a child's school when information changes (family moves to a new address, or home or work telephone numbers change). Only a parent or legal guardian may register a child in school. A legal guardian must present proper documentation (i.e., custody granted by a court or accredited agency).

    A parent or legal guardian must bring the required documentation when registering their student.
