Logging into PowerSchool: Which User Account Do I Use?

登入至PowerSchool: 我應該使用哪一個帳號?

All ISF parents are issued parent user accounts and a parent email address.

Your PowerSchool user account is the parent user account for your eldest child enrolled in The ISF at the start of the 16/17 school year.

For example: The Lee family has 3 children:

  • Grade 8: Nicholas - parent account: p0011111
  • Grade 5: Christina - parent account: p0022222
  • Grade 2: Coco - parent account: p0033333

The Lee family would use Nicholas' parent account, p0111111, to login to PowerSchool.




  • 八年級:Nicholas -家長帳戶:p0011111
  • 五年級: Christina - 家長帳戶:p0022222
  • 二年級: Coco - 家長帳戶: p0033333

李氏家庭將會使用 Nicholas 的家長帳戶(p0011111)來登入PowerSchool。

What is My PowerSchool Password?

我的PowerSchool 密碼是?

Your PowerSchool password will be emailed to you.

PowerSchool is NOT linked to The Portal. Unfortunately this means your PowerSchool and Portal password are not automatically the same.



  • Do I use the same username and password for PowerSchool and The Portal?
    • Same username
    • Different passwords

If you cannot find or did not get the email with your PowerSchool password please contact: psadmin@isf.edu.hk

  • 我是否使用同一個用戶名稱和密碼來登入PowerSchool和Portal?
    • 用戶名稱相同
    • 密碼不同


Do I Need a Separate Account for Each of My Children?


No. Your PowerSchool parent account links all your children's information to one parent account that allows you to view each child from that account.

For parents who are separated or divorced, an account can be created for each parent. This is only done under special conditions. Please contact PowerSchool support if this applies to you.

不用。您的PowerSchool 家長帳戶連繫閣下所有子女的資料至一個家長帳戶。您將可以透過同一個帳戶來查閱您所有在弘立書院就讀的子女資料。

Which Account Do I Use to Login to The Portal?

我該使用哪一個帳戶來登入The Portal?

To login in to The Portal you need to use the parent accounts and passwords linked to each of your different children. For most ISF parents these are the accounts you have previously been using.

  • For example: The Lee family has 3 children, they would need to login to The Portal using any of their 3 parent accounts:
    • Grade 8: Nicholas - parent account: p0011111
    • Grade 5: Christina - parent account: p0022222
    • Grade Y2: Coco - parent account: p0033333
  • Contact The IT Department if you need help with your Portal user account: portaladmin@isf.edu.hk

您需要使用連接每名子女的用戶帳號及密碼以登入至The Portal。


  • 例子:李氏家庭有三個小孩,家長需要分別使用三個不同的帳戶來登入The Portal以查看不同子女的資料。
    • 八年級:Nicholas -家長帳戶:p0011111
    • 五年級: Christina - 家長帳戶:p0022222
    • 幼稚園二年級: Coco - 家長帳戶: p0033333
  • 如需任何有關Portal帳戶協助,請即聯絡IT部門:portaladmin@isf.edu.hk

Problems Logging into The Portal with Different Parent Accounts

(this is for parents with more than one child)

Parents with more than one child may experience difficulties when trying to log in into The Portal with their second parent account.

This problem occurs because the Internet browser you are using remembers the last account you used to login making it difficult to switch accounts. Even if you logged out. There are two solutions to this problem.

The First Solution: Use Different Browsers

If you have multiple children the easiest solution is to use different browsers for each child. For example, use Google Chrome to login with parent account #1 and Firefox to login with parent account #2.

The Second Solution: Restart Your Browser

If you quite and restart your browser it will forget the last login you used. The steps for this are:

  1. Open the browser you want to use
  2. Log into PowerSchool
  3. For parent account #1
    1. Click on The Portal icon on Parent Resources
    2. Login to The Portal with parent account #1
    3. View the information you want to see
    4. Log out using the logout button located at the top right of the page
  4. Quit the browser
  5. Restart the browser
  6. Log into PowerSchool
  7. For parent account #2
    1. Click on The Portal icon on Parent Resources
    2. Login to The Portal with parent account #2
    3. View the information you want to see
    4. Log out using the logout button located at the top right of the page
  8. Quit the browser
