Where do I register for school?
At the Vancouver School Board there are two places where you can register your child for school depending on your home language and if you were born in Canada.
Register at the District Reception and Placement Centre (DRPC):
The team at the DRPC will assist parents who are registering their children from Kindergarten to grade 12 whose children were not born in Canada and who do not speak English as their home language. Go to the DRPC registration page for more information on registering at the DRPC.
Register at your Neighbourhood school
If your child(ren) were born in Canada and speak English as their home language you should register at your neighbourhood school.
Go to the general registration page for more information including the student application which includes a helpful checklist with the documents you'll need to bring with you when registering your child at the school.
