    Registration takes place in 3 parts

    1. Find your School (search by your home address)
    2. Pre-registration online through our registration gateway using the school you find above.
    3. Email required documents to ntpsenrollmentdocs@nthurston.k12.wa.us (1 email with all attachments preferred) or mail to the following address:

    4. Although emailing required documents is preferred, you may drop off copies of all required documents to the Student Records office at the Service Center.  See Student Records hours, directions, other summer information and COVID-19 restrictions >>
    5. After the required documents have been processed, your student will need to make an appointment with the counselor to register for classes (use your High School's website for Counseling Office contact information).
