The Newton Public Schools considers applications for students to transfer to schools outside of their home district. It is the goal of the school system to grant to the degree possible requests for out-of-assigned district placements. Impact on enrollment, staffing and space availability now and in the future are key considerations. Out-of-assigned district placements for students who wish to attend a school in Newton other than his/her district school are limited. Such placements will be made on a space available basis only.

Applications for the following school year must be submitted on forms which are available beginning November 19, 2012 in Room 218 at the Education Center. Parents/guardians requesting out-of-assigned district placements should call 617-559-6105 for information. Applications will also be available on-line at

Completed applications, signed by the in-district principal, can be submitted no earlier than March 1 and no later than May 1.
