Enrollment and Withdrawal

Enrollment at Issaquah High:

The Issaquah School District enrolls students for school using an online process. Families already active in the District and simply enrolling additional children may login to Family Access to enroll their new student online.

For all families - online enrollment must be completed using a laptop, desktop or notebook computer. It has been reported by families that online enrollment does not function properly when using one's phone.

Note: For current families, this process is only available to the first guardian that was listed on the enrollment paperwork. If that is not you, either have the other guardian complete this process or contact the counseling office to have the guardian order changed.

Families new to the district will create an account and follow the instructions on the enrollment page. Prior to using the online application process, please locate and have the required documents available to upload into the application as you complete it. This list is located on the district enrollment website (as well as toward the bottom of our page). You may save as you go and do not have to complete the application all in one sitting. Once the completed application is submitted online, the school will be available to approve it. Submitted applications will not be approved until all required documents are received by the school and guardian photo ID must be brought into the school for verification before you receive your start date.

**We will also need the course request form filled out as well. Rest assured - while IHS students submit their next-year course requests online in March, the process is very different for students newly enrolling at IHS for next year. You will submit your course requests as a part of your enrollment. Your student will have equal opportunity to their first choice requests regardless of when you complete your enrollment this spring.

Please consult our Course Guide for in-depth information about each course, graduation requirements, course sequencing, class descriptions, and learning recommendations. This is a valuable resource for deciding which courses to choose. Please use the forms below.
