Our first sessions are being offered on March 6th and 7th with more sessions to come later. Students will be able to visit classrooms, parents will meet with our leadership team, and we will tour the school.  If you would like to join us, please register to reserve your spot at a PreK Preview session. Only 18 spots are available per session.



We encourage you to begin the registration process online via the Ascender Parent Portal. This will save you time at the Enrollment Fair. If you already have an Ascender Parent Portal account, login using your information. If you do not have an account, you can create a new account. Simply login and complete the 6 steps under the "Enroll a New Student" section to register your students.  If you are unable to complete the steps online before the Enrollment Fair, there will be computers available on site to complete this process.



The NBISD Health Services Department will be hosting  a Vaccine Clinic at the Enrollment Fair.  Your children will be able to receive $10 vaccinations on site, even if you do not have health insurance. Insurance will also be accepted. You can ensure your child has all the vaccines they need for school next year. If you are interested in learning more, check out the flyer below.
