Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration


Welcome to the North Hills School District!

Kindergarten registration for the 2022-23 school year is now open.

Enrollment is open to students who turn five (5) years of age prior to August 1, 2022, and reside in Ross Township or the Borough of West View.

Families are encouraged to register their incoming kindergarten student as soon as possible. Children who are not registered by June 1 may be assigned to a district school building outside of their attendance area per school board policy No. 202.

To begin the enrollment process as detailed below, students must be five (5) years old before August 1.

Step 1: Register Online

  1. Visit the PowerSchool enrollment portal and create an account or sign in if you have previously used the enrollment portal. Please note: An enrollment portal account is different than a NHSD PowerSchool parent portal account.
  2. Complete and submit the new student registration form in the portal.

When registering, be sure to use an email address frequently checked to receive important district updates this spring and summer. If you notice you are not getting emails, check your spam/junk folder.

Step 2: Schedule an Appointment

Once online registration is complete, call your child's school to schedule an in-person appointment to complete your student's registration.

  • Highcliff Elementary: 412-318-1582
  • McIntyre Elementary: 412-318-1622
  • Ross Elementary: 412-318-1542
  • West View Elementary: 412-318-1502

Unsure which school your student will attend? Please refer to our street directory or view our attendance area map.

Please do not bring your kindergarten student with you to your appointment. Only one parent or guardian should attend.

You must bring the following to the appointment:

  1. Completed and printed Home and Health packet
  2. The student's birth certificate
  3. The student's immunization records (See what's required)
  4. Proof of residency documents:

    • Two (2) of the following Section B documents: Driver’s license, utility bill, automobile registration, tax statement, public assistance or medical assistance card
  5. Parent/guardian ID to be scanned into the school’s Raptor visitor management system
  6. Court-ordered custodial agreement, if applicable
  7. Completed Request for Student Records form, if the student is transferring from another school district. Do not send this form to the student's previous school.

The appointment should last no longer than 15 minutes assuming all paperwork is complete and ready to be submitted.
