Welcome to the Marple Newtown School District. We want to do everything possible to make the registration process efficient and productive. There is certain information needed for new students, and we must ask you to complete several forms. Some of this information may have been collected elsewhere for your child, but unless you brought the school records with you to the Registration Office, we will need the information in order to make the registration complete. Although the school will be requesting your child’s records from the previous school, we do not always get all the information in a timely manner. We appreciate your cooperation.
When you have completed or obtained all necessary documentation, PLEASE CALL 610-359-4260 TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT in the Registration Office to register your child. Appointments are only scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from 9 a.m. until noon (12:00 p.m.). The appointment should take 5-10 minutes per child. Your child should be able to start school two (2) school days after all the necessary documents have been finalized.
