23-24 Incoming Student Registration Information

For our 8th Grade Families: 

We are excited to Welcome you to the Bronco Family! There are a few different scenarios which may bring your to Northgate, and each is listed below to assist you in the process. Please read below, and reach out to if you have any questions.

If you live in the Northgate attendance area, and your student attends an MDUSD school- your student will automatically be rolled into our system. No action needed at this time. Please visit the course planning page to get your course requests in- email them to or bring them into the office. 

If you live in the Northgate attendance area, but your student attends a private or non-MDUSD school, you will need to first register your student. If they have never attended an MDUSD school, you will begin at the district registration page. When that is completed, you will complete a paper packet and keep it ready to bring in with you for a registration appointment. These appointments will begin in March. Email to make an appointment, or she will reach out after your registration is received. If your child once attended an MDUSD school, please reach out to to register as their information and file will need to be updated, and you will need an appointment for this, startnig in March. 

If you are out of the Northgate attendance area, and do not live in the "unassigned area" (Clayton region), you will need to apply to the district for a transfer. The transfer period begins in October 2022. Check the website and apply there.  This transfer period usually closes in November, with notifications going out to families in January. The district office handles all of these requests, please know that we do not have any control at the site level. Once you have been approved for a transfer, follow the applicable registration steps above. 

If you are out of the Northgate attendance area, and in the "unassigned area" you must request placement at Northgate High School. This happens on the district website. Once you receive notification of placement at Northgate High School, follow the appropriate steps above. If you live in this area and attend Pine Hollow or Diablo View, you must request placement. After you receive it and accept it, no further action is needed. If you do not accept the placement, the student will be dropped. 

If you have any questions about this process, please reach out to our office.
