School Options

High School Neighborhood Transfers

Transfers from one neighborhood school to another are permitted within the Arlington Public Schools subject to space availability. Each receiving school is limited to having five percent of the school's total enrollment based on the previous September 30 Student Membership Report. Any school where projected enrollment during the next three years exceeds capacity will not be eligible to receive transfers. The Superintendent annually will issue an updated list of the schools affected by this policy:
Please Note, during the application period (November 2013 to January 2014):
  • Wakefield High School will be accepting regular transfers for the 2014-15 school year.
  • Washington-Lee cannot accept any regular neighborhood transfers; It can only accept Pre-IB/IB transfers for the 2014-15 school year.
  • Yorktown High School will be able to accept a limited number of transfers for the 2014-15 school year. Applications will be accepted through January 17, 2014. Staff will know in January the exact number of available slots for transfers for the 2014-15 school year.
This five-percent limit does not apply, however, to schools identified by the School Board as being high school countywide schools and programs.
Transportation is not provided for neighborhood school transfers.
The transfer application process takes place between the first Monday in November through the third Friday in January for the following school year. Applications received after the application period are placed at the bottom of the existing waiting list.
