Quincy Public Schools is tracking enrollment projections, class sizes, and building capacities for the 2016-2017 school year.  QPS will issue periodic updates using a color code to indicate each school’s Open Enrollment status.

Red = Open Enrollment will be limited to siblings of students already enrolled for 2016-2017 in all grades

Yellow = Open Enrollment will be limited to siblings of students already enrolled for 2016-2017  in certain grades

Green =  Open Enrollment will not be limited to siblings

For elementary schools, Beechwood Knoll, Bernazzani, Lincoln Hancock, Clifford Marshall, Merrymount, Montclair, and Squantum Elementary Schools will be limited to accepting sibling Open Enrollment requests at most grades.   Parents who have requested non-sibling Open Enrollment to one of these schools should plan on having their students attend their home school.  Parents will be notified of Open Enrollment decisions by the end of June.

Current Open Enrollment status for all elementary schools is below:

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.
