Enrollment at 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.

In-Neighborhood Registrants

Please use the CPS School Locator to confirm that you reside in our attendance boundary. Registration for grades K-8 for those living within the Tubman boundary for the current school year can be done with the school clerk. Click here for a list of items to bring when registering.
