Yes, there is still time to register for BPS for next school year! Registration is open now for students in any grade and applies to both new registrations as well as students requesting a transfer to a different BPS school for next year. Families can follow the registration process outlined in Boston School Finder’s “How to Apply to Schools” resource guide.
