National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) School ID Codes. These codes are
required on GED application documents. To search for a high school’s NCES School
ID, access the NCES home page at http://nces.ed.gov/ When the site is accessed,
click Search for Schools, Colleges, and Libraries. After selecting the state from
the drop-down box enter the city and the name of the school. Check whether or not
the school is public or private. Click Search. When the school’s name and address
appear, click the name. School general information, data, and statistics will appear.
Included in the information will be the school’s 12-digit NCES School ID.
