Registration Information & Form

Dear Parents:

Please see registration procedures and required documentation below:

Registrations will be accepted, in order, at our Open House in January and date/time stamped February 1st, the District's official first day of registration.  If all documentation has not been included in the registration package by February 1st, your child’s registration will be unprocessed and put on a waitlist until all documentation received.  We do not have online registration at this time. Registration forms must be complete and accompanied by a copy of a recent report card, child's copy of a birth certificate and child's care card.  Proof of address required includes:  1) legal documentation eg: mortgage document/rental or lease agreement, property tax statement, property sale agreement, child tax credi or income tax assessment; and 2) utility bill, bank statement, credit card statement, recent T4, vehicle insurance, house insurance or MSP bill .  The office will not make copies of these documents for you.

January and February is the time of year when parents begin to look for a Middle School for their Grade 5 student. If you are interested in registering your child at ATMS, please read below:

  • Students from our three Feeder schools will automatically be registered at ATMS.  
  • ATMS has a capped enrollment of 450 students. There are 150 students in each grade - 6, 7 and 8.
  • The majority of our Grade 6 students come from our three feeder Elementary schools, King, South Poplar and Auguston. The remainder of our Grade 6 students come from schools through out Abbotsford and even eastern Aldergrove and Mission. We also occasionally have openings for Grades 7 and 8.
  • Registration Deadlines:
    •  Feeder Elementary Schools - March 1
    • "New to Traditional" Siblings  - February 15
    • Open Registration for all other students - No deadline
  • If  a student is placed on a waitlist, we will call you when we have a seat for you.
  • All "New to Traditional" students who register at ATMS in spring are put on waitlists. We have a "sibling" waitlist and a "non-sibling" waitlist.
  • The rules regarding what qualifies as a "sibling" has changed. Students who are wanting to attend ATMS and already have a brother or sister in ATMS are considered "Siblings" and are put on a priority waitlist. Students who do NOT have a sibling at ATMS have "non-sibling" status and are called when we have exhausted the "sibling" list.
