How to Register New Students

East Syracuse Minoa Central School District's registration office for new students is located in ESM Central High School: 6400 Fremont Rd., East Syracuse, NY 13057

Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Closed on Federal Holidays

Phone: 315-434-3011 Fax: 315-434-3351

Please note a student may be assigned to a school other than his/her own attendance zone to maintain the lowest possible
class sizes in all four elementary schools. Every effort is made to keep families in their attendance zone school.

Private or Parochial School Enrollment

For families with students attending private or parochial schools, New York State requires each school district to account for all school-age children. Therefore, parents/guardians are required to register their children with the school district in which they reside (your home district). This meets state reporting requirements and informs the transportation department in the child's home district to be aware of potential busing needs. 

Please contact the registration office at 315-434-3011.
