NEW Student Enrollment 2020 - 2021

Welcome all new families to the Huntington Beach City School District!
 
Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on March 11, 2020. Please follow the NEW student enrollment process detailed in the steps below. 
 
STEP 1: ONLINE PRE-ENROLLMENT
To register a new student, you must have a valid address within the Huntington Beach City School District attendance area. Verification of residence will be required after you complete the Online Pre-Enrollment step. 
 
  • Once the online Pre-Enrollment is completed, please proceed to Step 2.
  • Online Pre-Enrollment does not determine placement at a specific school.
  • Due to pending reconfiguration of school boundaries within our district, notification of school assignment of students in grades TK - 5th will be mailed to families in mid-May 2020. 
  • Enrollment will be finalized once Step 3 is completed in person at your school of assignment.
