Do you need to live in Shrewsbury to attend Shrewsbury Public Schools?

Yes.  Shrewsbury must be the legal residence of parent/guardian and student in order to attend school in Shrewsbury Public Schools.

Each year the School Committee votes regarding School Choice.  In the past, a limited number of School Choice seats in certain grade levels have been opened to students not living in Shrewsbury.  At the present time there are no School Choice seats available.  Please see the School Choice page in the left section menu for more information.

Where do I find a map of the elementary school districts? We are looking at houses in the area and would like to know which schools our kids would be attending.

We do not have an elementary district map, and would ask families to call our Registrar, Diane Abbott at (508) 841-8320, with the address. Diane will be happy to provide the elementary district for the address.

IMPORTANT:  There will be a new Kindergarten - Grade 4 elementary school opening in a few years.  When the new school opens, elementary attendance districts will be changing.  It is unknown at this time how district boundaries may change.
