    School Information and Enrollment 
    Click here to view a list of our 15 public schools and links to their individual pages. Please note that some school pages are under construction as they update, and we ask that you call your child's school for any specific questions you may have regarding information that may not be listed on their websites. 
    If you are new to Erie's Public Schools and need to enroll your student, we strongly encourage you to do so prior to the first day of school to avoid any unnecessary delays for your student. All information needed to enroll and/or transfer is available on our Child Accounting page or by calling 814-874-6150. 
    Families can use interactive maps to input their address and determine where it falls in the school boundaries (click on the photos below). Students who live very close to the boundary line between two schools should call the Child Accounting Office at 814-874-6150 to confirm their placement.
