Transferring Schools

  • In BPS, a transfer is a student moving from one Boston Public School to another Boston Public School. If your child currently attends a school outside of Boston, or attends a private, parochial, or charter school, please follow the instructions for registration here.

    The transfer period for the 2017-2018 school year has closed. The the last day to transfer for grades 1-12 was November 30, 2017 and the last day to transfer for grades K0-K2 was January 31, 2018.  

    For next school year (September 2018 - June 2019)
