Secondary Grades: Children who apply for initial admission to the district's schools in grades 6 - 12 by transfer from other schools will be placed at the grade and course level they would have reached elsewhere according to prior records and/or observation and evaluation by classroom teachers, guidance personnel, and the school principal. After such observations and evaluations have been completed, the principal will determine the final grade and course placement of the children.
Once you are registered in the Greenwich Public Schools, your school Principal will provide you with the information necessary to be sure your child is prepared for school. All schools post Back-to-School information on their respective websites in mid-August prior to the start of school.
