Students NEW to Mesa Public Schools
The Registration Process
There are TWO parts to registering a student. First, we must enroll your student into the MPS Student data base. Second, once in the data base, the academic advisors can create a schedule for your student.
It is our wish to make this process go quickly and smoothly for you. Having your documents ready greatly increases the speed in which you can get registered.
Additional Information Needed
- Has your student been
receiving special education services?
- Currently or ever
been suspended or expelled?
- Is Child Custody Information needed?
We need your cooperation in obtaining this information so your student can be placed in the classes that will best help him/her graduate. If you have a problem with one of these items, please call us for help.
Do not keep your student out of school for more than a day or two for lack of one of the above items. Failure to be in school on a continual basis can result in your student not receiving credit.

Bring Records from Previous School
In order to get your student on the proper road to graduation, it is important we know what they have earned. Transcripts or records assist the counselors in preparing the best class schedule possible for your student.
If at all possible, bring the records from the previous school. We will fax for records with your signed permission, however, it often takes some time for the previous school to send the records back to us. Bringing records with you, especially if coming from out of state, is a BIG help.
