ENROLLMENT TIME

Pre-Enrollment 2024-2025

Need to pre-enroll your student? Stop in the counseling center April 8th - 30th between 9:00am and 3:30pm

No Need for an appointment, but you must Bring: Student's birth certificate, proof of current immunizations, 2 proofs of address 

Check to see if you live in Highland’s boundaries: https://www.schoolsitelocator.com/apps/saltlakecity/)

If you don’t live in our boundaries, you will need to complete the Open Enrollment Application on the district website: New or Returning Student (slcschools.org)

IS MY STUDENT ENROLLED AT HIGHLAND HIGH? If you received a letter with your student's school ID number and a registration pin number, or you were provided a registration pin number by Highland High School, you are enrolled. Students who are new to the area or transferring from another school will need to be enrolled. Please contact Heather Parry at 801.484.4343 ext.7000 or heather.parry@slcschools.org to discuss enrollment. Please scroll down to learn more about documentation needed when enrolling. 

  • WHAT IS A "NEW STUDENT"? We do not refer to our 9th grade students who have pre-enrolled as "New Students". 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 yet enrolled. New students need to contact the main office for enrollment procedures. 

IS MY STUDENT REGISTERED FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR? In spring, students fill out a course selection card and choose classes for the upcoming school year. This is NOT considered registration, just indicating course preference. All students need to register in the FALL, online. Parents must complete online registration for their enrolled student(s) each year. If you logged in with the student ID and registration pin provided by Highland High School, completed the online registration and received a confirmation email that online registration was complete, you are registered. This also means that you do not need to come into Highland for registration! Please scroll down for more information about computer assistance, fees information, school lunches, and more. Also, make sure to read Students - Highland High School (slcschools.org) for more info. 

  • The student's registration pin, along with their student ID, is needed to login to online registration for enrolled students. This is found on the letter that was mailed to your home in July. Please make sure to use lower case letters when typing in your pin online. If you did not receive the letter, please contact us. We can check and provide you the needed ID and pin. If you do not have an ID and pin, you may need to pursue enrollment.

AS OF MARCH 2020 CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING SHADOWS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Students shadowing Highland High 9th-11th grade is available, but MUST be scheduled. We take multiple factors into account to allow this, i.e. events/field trips happening during the school day, availability of students and staff, permission needed from administration and the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of the student shadowing and the student being shadowed, etc. -- because of these reasons, we do not allow drop-in shadows. We do not start shadowing days until November and end in March. This is in order to accomodate our state testing schedule. Thank you for your interest in the Ram Fam.

Please complete this form to request a shadowing experience at Highland.
Upon approval, someone from our office will contact you to schedule the shadow.
