On the Road to Kindergarten!

  • Welcome, New Brookline Families

    Welcome to Brookline!

    The Public Schools of Brookline (PSB) serves over 7,500 students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. We operate eight elementary (K-8) schools and one high school in the Town of Brookline.

    The Office of Registration and Enrollment provides a centralized service for all Brookline residents to process new student registration, provide initial orientation to the Public Schools of Brookline, and perform ongoing residency verification.

    We are excited to welcome our newest students to Kindergarten! We know this is a very special time in each student's life, and we look forward to joining you on this journey.

    We hope that by providing comprehensive information and detailed instructions, registration will be straight-forward, allowing your family to enjoy the excitement. Please view or download our booklet, On the Road to Kindergarten! for in-depth details and instructions to help you along the journey to kindergarten. This booklet can be accessed on the right-side column.

Before getting started:

  • Eligible students are Brookline residents who are five (5) years old on or before August 31.

    You and your student must be active residents in the Town of Brookline in order to register for Kindergarten.

    Must be 5 years old to enter

    During the registration process, you must present documentation of your student’s primary residence in Brookline to the Office of Registration & Enrollment.

    • If you are planning to move to Brookline, you can begin the registration process once you and your student begin residing in Brookline.

    • Temporary residence in the Town of Brookline for the sole purpose of attending the Public Schools of Brookline will not be considered residency.


    Students registering for Kindergarten in the 2020-2021 School Year must be born between September 1, 2014, and August 31, 2015.
    There are no exceptions to the requirement for children born after August 31, 2015. 

  • Where do I enroll my student?

    Any student wishing to enroll or re-enroll at the Public Schools of Brookline will need to complete the registration process with the Office of Registration and Enrollment. Families will need to present three types of proofs to complete the enrollment of their students. You’ll learn more about what documents are needed in Step 1.
