Please find below some helpful information regarding the registration process. Please also visit the AUSD Powerschool Enrollment Information page linked above.
Do I need to set an appointment to come to the office once I register my child online?
No. The entire registration process is done fully online. This includes uploading all required documents to process applications.
Does Monterey Highlands request extra documents for registration?
Required documents are standard and the same across Alhambra Unified School District. Further residence verifications might be done in certain situations; this could include further documents, home visits...
Is my child guaranteed a spot once their application has been received and processed?
School staff process applications in the order received and make sure all requirements are met. This is not a guarantee of placement at Monterey Highlands. The administration reviews all enrollment and determines student placement. Office staff communicates confirmation of placement to families.
What impacts my child getting a spot at Monterey Highlands?
Placement is subject to space availability.
How can I get access to the parent portal?
For new students, school staff cannot provide access ID or access passcode for Parent Portal. An auto-generated email is forwarded to parents/guardians once the application is finalized in the system. For current students, parents may reach out to office staff for support.
How can I register my child in Monterey Highlands if it is not our home school? 
Permits and releases must be processed before completing registration. All permits must be submitted through the AUSD website. Permit release from other districts or schools must include all supporting documents. A release does not guarantee placement. Placement is subject to administrative review and space availability.
Can I request my child to be in a specific classroom?
Classroom placement requests are not accepted and will not be honored.
