How to Enroll

  • Welcome to Garner Magnet High School!

    New student registration is by appointment only. Please make sure you have all of the following required documents prior to making a registration appointment. While we can fax a request for your child’s transcript from the previous school, this must be taken care of before your registration appointment. If you do not have all the required registration documents, your appointment will need to be rescheduled for a later date.

    Step 1: Find your base school

    In Wake County, students are assigned to a base elementary, middle, and high school for their home address. Find your base school using our address look-up tool. Your base school may have an enrollment cap. You will still register for your base school. Learn more about how an enrollment cap might affect you.

    Step 3: Bring the enrollment materials to your base school

    In order to finalize the registration process, school staff will review your submission and contact you with the next steps. Please wait for information from your child's base school regarding the completion of the enrollment process. The following documents need to be presented in person at the school in order to complete the registration process even if you have uploaded the document to the online registration:

    1. A certified copy of your child's birth certificate. (Need a birth certificate? Parents of children born in Wake County may now order certified birth certificates on the Wake County Register of Deeds website.)
    2. Proof of your Wake County address:
    3. A photo ID of the parent or legal custodian
    4. Your child's immunization record
    5. Any custody documents


    Step 4: Obtain and submit proof of immunizations and NC Health Assessment

    State law requires that every child entering public schools in N.C. for the first time receive a health assessment. The assessment must occur within 12 months prior to entering school. You or your medical provider should provide a completed NC Health Assessment Form to the school on or before the child's first day of attendance. NC Health Assessment Forms are also available at Wake County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Wake County Health Department.

    State law requires these vaccinations before a student enters kindergarten and 7th grade.
