registration & orientation documents for new families
The links below contain information for families who have been offered, and who have accepted, space at our school for the 2017-18 school year. Please note that you may not register your child unless you have officially been offered space from our lottery and/or waiting list.
Students transferring in to our school from another Baltimore City Public School will not need to complete the new student enrollment forms. Instead, at the end of the school year, they should request a transfer packet from the school they currently attend, and deliver that packet to our office. Our school secretary will advise on whether any additional forms are needed after that.
For questions related to the process of registering a child, or how to complete new student enrollment forms, please contact Mrs. Worrell in our main office at 443-642-3600.
The window to apply for our 2017-18 student lottery has closed as of close of business on Friday, February 10.
Applications received after this point will not be included in our lottery but will be placed on the next available place on our waiting list for the appropriate grade level. We currently have waiting lists in each grade level, of varying lengths.
ONLINE APPLICATIONS ARE PREFERRED FOR ACCURACY AND EFFICIENCY, BUT ARE NOT REQUIRED.
Children must be 5 years old on September 1, 2017 to be enrolled in Kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year, and must be Baltimore City residents.
You can complete our online application (link above), or our paper lottery application and mail, fax, or hand-deliver as indicated on the form. You may also visit our school at 2810 Shirley Avenue, 21215 to pick up a hard-copy application form in person. We must receive one application for each child.
We are happy to arrange for a personal tour. For questions or to schedule a tour, call 443-642-3602 or email MCanino@bcps.k12.md.us
Do you live in Park Heights? You may be eligible for geographic preference in our annual student lottery.
Starting in the lottery for 2016-17, Creative City has been approved by the school district to offer a geographic preference for students residing in the following neighborhoods, and as outlined in the map below:
Central Park Heights
The western boundary is the Metro track, corresponding with (but not extending to include) the 3100 through 5100 blocks of Wabash Avenue. The northern boundary is the 4100 through the 5100 blocks of Belvedere Avenue. The eastern boundary is the 4400 to 5100 blocks of Pimlico Avenue, extending across the 2500 and 2400 blocks of W. Cold Spring Lane, and continue south through the 3500 to 4200 blocks of Greenspring Avenue. The southern boundary of this zone is 2300 to 2800 blocks of Druid Park Drive. The southern most point of this zone is Henry G. Parks Jr. Circle.
Twenty percent (20%) of available lottery seats will be set aside for students who are verified as living in this zone. If there are more applicants from this zone than available set-aside seats, eligible Park Heights residents will be randomly selected for the seats that are set aside, and all remaining eligible Park Heights applicants will be participants in our general student lottery.
