Please note, if your school of residence is at capacity in the grade level you’re registering for, then your student can be placed at the school that has space available. We have two elementary schools (TK-5th), Horace Mann Elementary and Hawthorne Elementary, one middle school (6th-8th), Beverly Vista Middle School, and one high school (9th-12th), Beverly Hills High School.

Step 1: Online Pre-Enrollment

To register a new or returning student, you must have a valid address within the Beverly Hills Unified School District attendance area OR qualify for an Interdistrict transfer permit by being currently employed by the City of Beverly Hills or the Beverly Hills Unified School District.
