Online Student Membership
Students have the option of creating a student membership account with a parent/guardian. This is optional. If you want to create a student account then you can create one at https://www.njhs.us/studentaccount/. Our School Affiliation ID is 00027229. After you create an online student account, an NJHS advisor must “verify” your account for it to be activated. This may take a couple days. Send Ms. Baird a message letting her know that you need your account verified. Once again, creating an online account is optional. The only reason for creating an online student account is if you are interested in receiving information about additional NJHS programs and activities. There is a scholarship opportunity available now thru March 16th. You must have a verified student account to apply for the scholarship.
