Quincy Public Schools is tracking enrollment projections, class sizes, and building capacities for the 2018-2019 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 in all grades.  Older siblings must be scheduled to attend the school for the 2018-2019 school year.  For example, a student currently in Grade 5 cannot be considered a sibling to an incoming Kindergarten student as they would not attend the school concurrently.

Yellow = Open Enrollment will be limited to siblings of students already enrolled in certain grades.  For example, a school may have seats available in Kindergarten, but not in another grade.

Green =  Open Enrollment is available at all grade levels.

For elementary schools, Beechwood Knoll, Lincoln Hancock, Clifford Marshall, Merrymount, and Montclair Elementary Schools will be limited to accepting sibling Open Enrollment requests at all grades. Bernazzani and Wollaston may be accepting Kindergarten Open Enrollment requests but will be limited at Grades 1-5.  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:

Atherton Hough

Beechwood Knoll 


Lincoln Hancock

Clifford Marshall 




Snug Harbor




At the middle school level, Open Enrollment at Central Middle School will be limited to siblings only in all grades.  Parents will be notified of Open Enrollment decisions by the end of April.


Broad Meadows


Point Webster



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

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.
