Transferring a student to another school

  • All NTPS students are required to attend the school inside the boundary in which they reside. See school boundary maps >>

    If a student wishes to attend a different school (either another school in our district or a school elsewhere), they must follow the transfer process. Forms must be submitted by a parent or guardian. See NTPS Policy 3131 & 3141 for details.
