New Student Registration for Elementary Schools

  • Welcome to NTPS new students! Enrollment is not complicated, but does involve a few steps. Please read the instructions carefully.

    Registration steps

    1. Find your School (search by your home address)
    2. Pre-register through Registration Gateway
    3. Bring documents to your school office (with the required and/or optional documents below) to complete registration.

    Important Notes

    • Registration Gateway will be discontinued on May 5, 2023. All three steps of new student registration must be submitted by May 5, or registration will have to be completed via paper forms.
    • Elementary boundaries are currently under review and student assignments may be impacted beginning in the 2023-24 school year. Learn more about the boundary review.
    • Pre-registration online collects the state-mandated information about your student and will become part of their official record.
    • Only a parent/guardian living in the District and at the same residence as the student may enroll the student. 
    • Please provide accurate information. Inaccurate information could place you in jeopardy of legal action.
    • Submitting pre-registration information does not guarantee your student has met the requirements for admittance.
    • If you do not have a computer with internet access, please contact your school to use a district computer.
