    Middle School Visits:
    February and March, our Counselors visit our main feeder schools - Auburndale, Norco Intermediate, and Corona Fundamental to meet with Incoming Freshmen to review the courses they have selected and collect course selection sheets. 
    The links below contain information pertaining to incoming freshmen. Please feel free to download, view and/or print any forms or handouts on this webpage that were not received or may have been lost or misplaced.

    Transfer Students:
    You must to go through the normal transfer process through the district office in order to be approved to attend Norco High School if this is not your home school. In the meantime, please download and print a course selection sheet from this website (below) or ask for one from your current school to submit to Norco. Counselors will not be able to enter course requests for transfer students until the student's transfer is approved and counselors have been given access to your records on Q Student Portal. Unfortunately, this will cause a delay in your courses being selected in the student portal. Some courses may not be available to transfer students due to this delay. Counselors will keep the hard copy you submit of your course selections and will enter them when they have access. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.
