Parent Portal Login In Link Click Here

PowerSchool Parent Portal is an online resource that gives parents access to their children's homework assignments, grades and more.  All school districts in North Carolina have changed the student information system from NCWISE to Power School. The new interface is more user-friendly and will give parents access to:
  • Grades and attendance
  • Test results
  • Grade history
  • Attendance history
  • Email notifications that can include your child's grades and school announcements
  • Teacher comments
  • School bulletins
  • Calendars
 If you had a username and password last year, then you should still be able to access the Parent Portal.  If you have forgotten your log in information, you may contact the school to assist you.  Students new to the school will receive log in information at Open House or on the first day of school.
