Quincy Public Schools is continuing to track preliminary enrollment projections for the 2015-2016 school year.  These enrollment projections have a direct impact on budget planning in terms of class sizes, building capacities, and the Open Enrollment process.

To keep parents informed, QPS will issue periodic updates using a color code to indicate each school’s Open Enrollment status, as this may change as registration continues throughout the spring.

Red = Open Enrollment will be limited to siblings of students already enrolled for 2015-2016 in all grades

Yellow = Open Enrollment will be limited to siblings of students already enrolled for 2015-2016  in certain grades

Green =  Open Enrollment will not be limited to siblings

For elementary schools, enrollment projections strongly suggest that the Beechwood Knoll, Clifford Marshall, and Merrymount Elementary Schools will be limited to accepting sibling Open Enrollment requests at all grades.   Parents who have requested non-sibling Open Enrollment to one of these schools should plan on having their students attend their home school.

Current Open Enrollment status for all elementary schools is below:

Atherton Hough

Beechwood Knoll 

Bernazzani

Lincoln Hancock

Clifford Marshall 

Merrymount

Montclair

Parker

Snug Harbor

Squantum

Wollaston

The timeline for notification of elementary school Open Enrollment is late June.

At the middle school level, enrollment projections strongly suggest that Open Enrollment at Atlantic and Central Middle School will be limited to siblings only in all grades.   Parents who have requested non-sibling Open Enrollment to Atlantic or Central should plan that their students will attend their home school.  

The timeline for notification of middle school Open Enrollment is early June.

Atlantic

Broad Meadows

Central

Point Webster

Sterling

 

For both North Quincy High School and Quincy High School, all Open Enrollment requests received to date have been granted.

 If you have questions about the Open Enrollment process or specific schools, please contact:  Maura Papile (617.984.8898), Rita Ranalli (617.984.8891), or Laura Owens (617.984.8702) or by email at openenrollment@quincypublicschools.com.

The Quincy School Committee has a policy of granting Open Enrollment on a space-available basis.  When making the decision to admit open enrollment students, the Superintendent must consider the capacity of the school building to accommodate Open Enrollment students both for the present school year and future years.   Click here to access the Open Enrollment link on the QPS website.
