High School Enrollment and Class Registration

If your current 8th grade student is planning to attend Sumner High School or Bonney Lake High School, they are asking you to fill out their online enrollment form now. You will need to go to the schools website: at the top search bar under "Our School" you will see the "Enrollment" tab. If you have any questions or problems with the online enrollment call the school directly. They can help you over the phone or set up an appointment to meet with you.

SHS # 253-891-5500

BLHS # 253-891-5700

If you are planning to go to Auburn Riverside High School you do not need to do anything at this time. They do not need your enrollment until March.

If you are planning to attend any other high school, I recommend you check with the school to see when and how they want you to enroll.

**On March 7th during 1st period, the high school counselors from ARHS, BLHS, and SHS will be at NTMS to set up your freshman year classes.

If you need your child's immunization records for registration use the link below:
