The Registrar’s Office is located in A116. During the school year, the office is open for new student registration from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m., Monday - Friday. We do, however, close during testing and holidays. In addition, there are special registration times offered at the beginning of each semester and over the summer (click here). For questions, please check the school calendar or contact the Registrar’s Office at 713-556-5224.SCHOOL ATTENDANCE ZONES
Most schools have specifically defined attendance zones that include residential areas that each school serves. On the basis of a student's home address, HISD assigns each student to a "feeder pattern" composed of a specific elementary, middle, and high school. To determine which schools serve your residence, use the online "School Zone Search Tool" or call the Student Transfer Department at 713-556-6734 or the HISD Information Center at 713-556-6005.If a Westside student wants to transfer to another HISD school, the child’s parent or guardian must complete the Application for Student Transfer and deliver it to Mary Hansen in L101.If a student wishes to withdraw from Westside, he or she should contact the attendance office (A119) or call 713-556-5226.NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION – REQUIRED DOCUMENTSIn order to enroll at Westside High School, a student MUST:
