School Transfer Requests - Newton Residents and NPS Faculty/Staff Only

  • The Newton Public Schools considers applications from families residing in Newton who would like their student to attend or transfer to a school different from their assigned district. This process is also utilized for Newton faculty/staff (NTA Units A, B, C, D, E, NESA, Custodial Union) who wish to enroll their student in the Newton Public Schools.


  • Applications for the 2022-23 school year were due on May 2, 2022. Applications received after May 2 and before Labor Day may be considered only after all other placement decisions have been made. 

    Placement decisions will be made in August 2022.

Other Key Information

    • School Transfers are limited and made on a space available basis. Impact on enrollment, as well as staffing and space availability, for both the requested year and for future years, are key considerations in the application process.
    • The established procedure and application process must be followed in order for the request to be considered. Please see the School Transfer Policy issued by the Newton School Committee.
    • Parents/guardians are responsible for transportation if the student is placed at the requested transfer school.
    • For families, once a school transfer is approved, the student will follow the feeder pattern for the new school through middle and high school. A new application is NOT needed each year.
