School catchment areas

Catchment areas for each school within WSD are established under the direction of the Chief Superintendent. Students normally attend the school within the catchment area in which they reside. To find your neighbourhood school please click here and follow the directions.

Students residing within WSD boundaries may attend the WSD school of their choice provided there is space available and transportation costs are not borne by the division.

Schools of Choice

With the provisions of the Schools of Choice initiative, students may apply for admission to any public school, within limits, in the province best suited to the student’s learning requirements. To learn more about Manitoba Education Schools of Choice please click here.

To register for WSD nursery, children must live within the boundaries of the Winnipeg School Division.


Language programs

Winnipeg School Division recognizes the diversity of our population by providing a rich and varied offering of language programming. Students have a choice of immersion “milieu” or immersion dual track schools. The milieu schools are where the French immersion program is the only program taught in the school and starts at nursery.

Dual track and bilingual school starts at kindergarten and is one where the regular English program is also taught. Languages include French, Ukrainian and Hebrew.


Ojibwe and Cree language is part of the Aboriginal Education program that starts in nursery at Niji Mahkwa School.

Transportation service is provided in accordance with the Public Schools Act (Sections 43-47), Manitoba Regulation No. 465/88R and WSD Policy EEA – Transportation of Pupils. Within these guidelines, every effort is made to improve transportation efficiency by clustering students to bus stops and by providing service on major streets.

Transportation is provided for:

Special education programs:  Students who have exceptional learning needs such as social/emotional, behavioural, sensory, physical, cognitive/intellectual, communication, academic or special health-care are provided with door-to-door school bus transportation.

Language and alternative programs:  Students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 in a language or alternative program, and nursery students attending one of WSD’s three French immersion milieu schools or Aboriginal education school, who live 1.6 kilometers or further from the school, are provided with bus transportation.

All requests for transportation services should be directed to the student’s school.
