student with backpack It's time to register for kindergarten! Spartanburg District Five is excited to welcome parents and families needing to register new kindergarten, 4K or 1st grade students.


The registration window begins February 1, 2021, and runs through March 31.


This year, parents and families will have an extra convenience:  the process can now be completed ONLINE!  Click to begin pre-registration process.


For those who wish to do the process in person, there is no need to worry!  Parents and families are still able to complete registration at any of the district's six elementary schools:  Abner Creek Academy, Duncan Elementary School of the Arts, Lyman Elementary School, Reidville Elementary School, River Ridge Elementary School, and Wellford Academy.  There is no appointment needed.  Simply visit your home zoned school to sign up!  If you are unsure which school you are zoned for, check out the district's attendance area map.

Before registering, you will need these documents:

  • child's birth certificate
  • immunization records
  • proof of residency (water or power bill OR rent/lease agreement in your name)


To apply for Limited School Choice (LSC), you must also complete the LSC application available on the District Five website.  Applications will only be accepted through March 31, 2021.  (**Please note**:  Reidville Elementary School is closed to school choice for the 2021-22 school year.)

We look forward to welcoming all new students to District Five for the 2021-22 school year!
