All transfer requests should be filed with either the Director of Elementary Education (PreK - 5th grade) or Director of Secondary Education (6 - 12th grade).
Before applying, parents should understand that they are responsible for furnishing transportation of their child to and from school, and the transfer may be revoked by the school principal if the student’s grades, attendance, transportation arrangements, or behavior reach an unacceptable level.
In-district transfers may be requested by filing application for transfer of school site within the NPS district. Parents must reside within the NPS district boundaries before applying. Parents of multiple children seeking placement must submit a separate application for each child.
For Parents of New Pre-Kindergarten Students: In-district transfer requests are not required to attend another school site.
For Parents of New Kindergarten Students: As our kindergarten classes have had a history of high enrollment, transfer requests customarily cannot be acted upon until after confirmation of enrollment in early August. Please keep this in mind when submitting your application.
Transfer requests are not considered on a first-come/first-served basis, but by priority levels and classroom space. Most often, transfers will not be reviewed until projected enrollment is compiled in late May.
