Usernames

All new and returning students: We want to make sure you know/remember your username. Please use the following formula:

PWCS Student Username
A student’s username is determined as follows:
- First 6 Letters of the Last Name
- First Initial
- Middle Initial
- Last 2 digits of graduation year

If your name was John Frank Johnson and you will be a graduating senior in 2024, your username will be:
(example) JohnsoJF24

If your last name is less than 6 letters, you will use your whole last name:
(example) MillsDT22

Now you will go to the Password Reset button on this page and complete the reset. Now you can access all of your PWCS applications.
Note: ParentVue has the student's email address
