Welcome Class of 2029! All schools provide academics, arts, physical education, and music under the direction of high-quality teachers. 

How To Enroll
Students must be five years old on or before Aug. 31 of the current school year to start kindergarten.

1. Gather these materials: 
  • Certified copy of your child's birth certificate
  • Proof of residence
  • Immunization Record
  • Kindergarten Health Assessment
  • Social Security Card
2. Visit your child's district school to enroll. We recommend calling ahead to schedule an appointment.

3. For incoming kindergarten students only: North Carolina law requires that a completed Kindergarten Health Assessment be completed on or before the first day of school before a child can enter kindergarten. The health assessment must be completed no more than 12 months prior to the date of entry. Physical examination forms are available at Bladen County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Bladen County Health Department. Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can get health assessments and immunizations through the Bladen County Health Department. First-time appointments should call (910) 862-6900.
