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.

    Please Note: The transfer window for the 2019-2020 school year for students in grades 1-12 closed on November 27, 2019. Transfer applications for students in grades K0-K2 are still accepted until Janaury 31, 2020.

    For the 2019-2020 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 the next school year.

    For the 2020-2021 School year:

    • Transfer applications for the 2020-20201 school year will be accepted starting in January 2020.
