Admission to Tubman

Harriet Tubman Elementary is a CPS Neighborhood and Magnet Cluster School with a Fine and Performing Arts Focus.

A Magnet Cluster school has a neighborhood attendance boundary and accepts students who live within that boundary. Students who live outside of the neighborhood attendance boundary must participate in the GoCPS application and selection process in order to be considered for acceptance.

Kindergarten Enrollment

All children residing in the City of Chicago who are 5 years old on or before September 1, 2021 (Birthdates 9/2/15 - 8/31/16), are eligible for enrollment into a CPS Kindergarten program.  The parent, legal guardian, or temporary custodian of any elementary age child enrolling in a Chicago public school is required to submit proof of age and required medical records to the school.
