Find Your School

We encourage parents and students to use Infofinderi to determine which schools a particular address is assigned to. When you type in the address, put the house number first, then the street name, then the direction. Do not use punctuation.

Example: 1009 1st St N instead of 1009 N. 1st St.

If you have difficulty using Infofinderi, call 323-4502
