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.


    For the 2018-2019 School year:

    • Visit a Welcome center with a valid parent/guardian photo identification to complete a transfer application. Assignments will be released as soon as they are processed.
    • Please note that transfers are not guaranteed. Additionally, if the transfer is granted, your child will lose their seat at their current school for next school year.

    Note: The transfer window for students to transfer from one BPS school to another is open until November 30, 2018, for grades 1-12 and January 31, 2019, for grades K0-K2.
