New Student Registration

New Student Registration

Welcome to North Hills School District!

The step-by-step enrollment process is detailed below. Registration is limited to residents of Ross Township and the West View Borough.

Per the school board's policy on class size (No. 202), elementary children who are not registered to attend school by June 1 prior to the upcoming school year may be assigned to a district school building outside of their attendance area.

Register Online

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

Schedule an Appointment

Once online registration above is submitted, call your student's school to schedule an in-person appointment to complete the registration. For elementary students, refer to our street directory or view our attendance area map to find the school your student will attend.

At your student's in-person registration appointment, you will receive information to log in to your district PowerSchool account. PowerSchool is the district's online student information system offering parents and guardians real-time access to grades, attendance, teacher comments and assignments, and other important information. This account is different than the PowerSchool registration portal. Learn more.
