Welcome to Course Registration 2020-2021!
The course registration period for the 2020-2021 school year ends at different times for different classes of students. For a detailed schedule, reference the table below. Student course requests may not be changed once the registration period has ended. Students will have the opportunity to submit a schedule change request during the Drop/Add period.
Online Registration: Students will register online through PowerSchool. Log into the student or parent portal anytime during your grade level's registration window to select your courses. Students who do not choose courses through PowerSchool by the deadline will have their courses chosen for them by their counselors.
Students and parents should click on "Class Registration" in the PowerSchool Portal to select courses.
It is recommended that students desiring to take an Honors course have at least a B (80) average in the prerequisite course along with a teacher recommendation. If this recommendation is not met, then a Parent Consent Form is needed to place the student in the course. Parent Consent Forms are available in the student services department. Except in extenuating circumstances, students will not be permitted to drop an Honors, AP, or CCCC course after the registration period has ended.
Please be aware that all Honors and Advanced Placement English classes have required summer reading assignments. Also, most other Advanced Placement classes have required summer assignments.
Any student desiring to take an AP course must submit a signed Northwood High School Advanced Placement Course Agreement to Student Services by the end of their grade's registration window.
