NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION APPOINTMENTS >>

Highland defines "New Students" as those who are new to the area (who have recently moved into Highland boundaries) or students on Special Transfer who have NOT pre-enrolled. If you had transferred out of Highland and are now returning, you would be a New Student. New Students are NOT 9th grade students who have pre-enrolled, filled out a course selection sheet in the spring, and received a registration pin in the mail to complete registration online. If you did NOT receive a letter in the mail with a pin and id you may be registering as a NEW STUDENT.

Starting August 3, 2016, contact our main office at 801.484.4343 ext.0 to set a New Student Registration Appointment. Our registration dates will be August 9, 10, and 11.

NEW STUDENTS will receive an online password and additional directions once their appointment is set. Part of a New Student appointment is meeting with a school counselor to create a class schedule; please plan your time accordingly, the registration appointment could take up to an hour and sometimes two because of this. The student's legal guardian/parent must be present to enroll the student and stay for the duration of the enrollment process. ESL students must be tested as part of their enrollment process. Documents that you will be asked to bring to your New Student Registration Appointment are: birth certificate, up-to-date immunization records, transcript from last school attended, and if applicable - your copy of the approved Special Transer Enrollment Application(see below for more information).
