Signal Mountain Middle High School


Welcome to SMMHS

If your student is not currently enrolled in a Hamilton County School, you will need to complete a new student registration. Scroll for the New Student Registration section.


Only students new to SMMHS will complete registration and orientation activities in person on our August 4th Registration Day.

· STEP 1 --- Complete the Returning Student Update 23-24 through your PowerSchool Parent Portal. (Contact [email protected] if you need a password reset.) It is recommended to use a desktop/laptop rather than a phone. Updating your student's PowerSchool account is vital in helping the school keep you informed, as well as protect your student. If you do not update this information, the school may not have correct information necessary for communication or dismissal contacts for your student. Please enter all fields in the Contacts section (address, email, phone) and answer all yes/no questions concerning emergency contact, custody, can pick up student, etc.

· STEP 2 --- Email 2 proofs-of-residency to [email protected].

2 Proofs of Residency can be any of the following documents at the physical address in our school zone in Guardian’s name dated within the last 30 days:

*Please note the student’s name and grade level on the proof-of-residency copies or in the email

· Mortgage, Lease, or Deed

· Electric, water, gas, or cable

· Agency or Court Documentation with address (IRS, SS Disability)

· Insurance (medical, life, auto, home) statement

· Current Bank Statement or Employment Check Stub with address

*Once received, the submissions will be reviewed and you will only be contacted if different or additional residency documentation is needed.

Although Registration Day on August 4th is meant for new students to SMMHS, returning families who need assistance with online registration can visit the school between 9-11 AM.

Parking passes will be sold on a different day, details forthcoming.

If you have any returning student registration questions, please contact [email protected]

We will be open between 9-11 AM on Friday, August 4th for New Student Registration Day. New students and their families will check-in at the school’s front entrance. New families who have completed registration (submitted the online registration with all required documents) will be directed to our Media Center to speak with your school counselor about course selections followed by a student-led tour. Families who have not started or are still working on registration will be directed to a computer classroom for assistance. Please bring a copy of the above listed required documents if you have not previously provided them to the school. Once registration is complete, the student and their family can visit welcome stations to learn more about SMMHS!

If you have any new student registration questions, contact Susan Patton at [email protected]. Please note that Mrs. Patton will be out of the office between June 1- July 24.
