Did you get your child enrolled in that( school of his choice) school?

In this sentence should I use "get" with "enrol"

    I think you can, yes, but you can also ask "Did you enrol your child in that school?".
    The "get" version carries a sense of "Did you succeed in getting your child enrolled there?", especially if it's a school with a good reputation and to which every parent wants to send their children, but demand exceeds supply.

    I woukd like to ask another question. Do you see any error in this sentence?

    Could you get yourself enrolled into that school?

    Yes, I don't think "into" works. It works with "in".
    Actually, I think it works much better (also in the original version in #1) with "at".
