Returning Student Online Registration Process

Parents of students who attended FSHISD schools in the 2021-2022 school year will complete an abbreviated online registration process unless the student was withdrawn at the end of the school year or if the parents have not been assigned on post housing.

Parents will update their student's registration annually using their secure SchoolMint parent portal account. Re-registration will be available on April 11, 2022 at 8:00 a.m.

New Student Online Registration Process

Registering new students to FSHISD, requires a three-step process.  First, parents must create a SchoolMint portal account at and second, complete enrollment application. The registration application requires parents registering students new to FSHISD to upload some documents and verify documents in person to verify eligibility.  

Student not living on post will require the completion/approval of the Non-Resident Transfer application prior to the registration process.  Completing the NRT application does not constitute approval. After the District reviews the application, you will receive an email notifying you of the application decision.
