Welcome to the Public Schools of Brookline!

  • We are glad you are here and interested in enrolling your child in our public schools! Our mission is to ensure that every student develops the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a productive and fulfilling life, participate thoughtfully in a democracy, and succeed in a diverse and evolving global society.

    roadmap for registration

Who is eligible to register?

  • In order to register for school, you and your children must be residents of Brookline and provide proof that the family lives in Brookline.

    • If you are planning to move to Brookline and hope to enroll your child or children, you will only be able to register once you have moved into your Brookline residence. You may begin to fill out the application approximately one month in advance of your arrival to secure an appointment after you take occupancy of your Brookline home.

    Temporary residence in Brookline, for the sole purpose of attending the public schools, will not be considered as residency.

    • To attend the Public Schools of Brookline, a student must reside in the Town of Brookline. A student’s primary residence is the place where s/he dwells permanently, not temporarily, and is the place that is the center of his or her domestic, social and civic life.

    • The primary residence of a minor child is presumed to be the legal residence of the parent(s) or guardian(s) who have physical custody of the child. It is presumed that if a student is or will be residing here for three months or less, the student does not meet resident eligibility requirements and cannot be enrolled.

    Under State and Federal law, your child will always have a place in the Brookline Schools. None of Brookline's K-8 schools, or the high school, will ever turn away a student who meets the residency requirements above. Please be mindful of school zones and buffer zones when registering your child for school in Brookline.
