Staff Start


Welcome to SDUHSD and Pacific Trails Middle School
We are looking forward to working with you and your student during the upcoming years.  This  SDUHSD Welcome Letter includes important information about the enrollment process for the 2021-22 academic school year.
Enrollment is based on residency, not on the elementary school your student attended.  Use this Boundary Locator to see which middle school is yours.  If you would like your child to attend a school other than the school serving your neighborhood, you must follow the process outlined to request an intradistrict transfer.  Please click on the following link for information on the Intradistrict Transfer process which runs concurrently with the enrollment window.

Course Selection (March)

Course selection for incoming students will take place March 17-26, 2021.  Parents and students will submit their class selections online via the Aeries Parent Portal and also submit a signed Course Selection Contract to the PTMS Counseling Office.  Parents have the option to email the Course Selection Contract to or drop-off a printed paper copy to the administration office between 7:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Pacific Trails Middle School Principal and Counselors will have a virtual opportunity available for parents and students to learn more about our school and receive course selection information.  You will be provided with information about course selection, elective courses, school bell schedule, math diagnostic placement tests, academic support services, clubs, sports, and most of the information is the same for each of our middle schools.  Sixth grade class visits will be in mid-March and Parent Information sessions will be in mid-March.  Please refer to the PTMS Welcome Flyer and the PTMS 2021-22 School Year Enrollment and Articulation Timeline for more details and dates.
