The public school sytem of Prince Edward Island is funded by the provincial government. Children must turn five years old by December 31 to enter kindergarten and turn six years old by December 31 to enter grade one.
Prince Edward Island's public schools are operated by two elected school boards. As specified in the School Act [PDF File], school boards provide for instruction, management of personnel, facilities and the transportation of students.
To determine which school your child can attend, visit the Address Locator. By supplying your civic address you can determine the schools in your neighborhood. To register your child at one of these schools, contact the school directly.
Students in public schools are not required to wear uniforms to school, although most schools have a dress code.
