New Student Enrollment 

Our teachers, administrators and support staff are committed to academic excellence and quality service for our families. As such, we hope to make the enrollment process as quick and convenient as possible. To enroll, follow the steps below.


What grade is your student eligible for enrollment? Students do their best work in school when they are placed in a grade with other students of the same chronological age. The following link provides HBCSD guidelines for placing students at the appropriate grade level. Please contact your school if you have any questions regarding grade-level placement.
