How to enroll at Pacoima Middle School

Check if you live in the Pacoima Middle School attendance area using the Resident School Identifier.

Your child is eligible to attend Pacoima because it is your "home school."

If your child currently attends a Pacoima feeder elementary school then your child will be automatically enrolled at Pacoima. His or her student information will be sent to Pacoima by his or her elementary school in the Spring. All students coming from feeder elementary schools receive a welcome letter, orientation date and an enrollment confirmation from Pacoima Middle School in the summer.

 

If your child does not currently attend a Pacoima feeder elementary school (e.g., your child is home-schooled, is attending a private school, or you will be moving into the Pacoima attendance area) then you should come to our Attendance Office to pick up enrollment forms, or visit https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/16659#spn-content  for the online enrollment process.
