Upper School Transfer Lottery

By School Committee policy, school transfers at the Upper School level are allowed only during limited time windows, in order to maintain the stability of the Upper School experience. Students may not transfer to a different Upper School between 5th and 6th Grade.

Transfer requests for students who will be entering 7th or 8th grade in September will be accepted during the month of May. Families must complete a transfer form in order to participate.

There may be very limited seats available for school transfers, and a list of available seats within the two assignment categories (Free/Reduced Lunch or Paid Lunch) will be posted online and available at the Family Resource Center.

Transfer requests from students entering 7th and 8th Grade the following year will be combined with new 7th and 8th Grade registrations received by May 31, and entered into a randomized lottery held in June. Students who do not receive their choice of assignment will be automatically included in a second transfer lottery to be held in October. If seats are determined to be open after the start of school, the October lottery will provide a second round of transfer offers to a small number of students.

The only exception to these policies would be in case of a Hardship. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Family Resource Center.
