Sizer has stopped accepting applications for 2020-2021 school year
Sizer School reserves the right to re-open applications as needed per our enrollment policy (see below). Check back regularly to see if Sizer School is currently accepting applications/enrolling students.
A public lottery will take place Wednesday, March 4 at 5:30 p.m. at Sizer School, 500 Rindge Rd. Fitchburg, MA 01420 with a snow date of Thursday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m.
Sizer School is chartered for up to 400 seats for grades 7 through 12. Sizer enrolls approximately 65-80 students at grade levels 7, 8 and 9. Sizer accepts applications for students entering grades 7, 8, and 9 and follows backfilling requirements as described below in sections 5 and 6.
Sizer School will only call for and accept applications for grades 10, 11, and 12 if determined necessary by factors such as size of current class, staff capacity, and overall enrollment needs. If Sizer School determines that it has openings in grades 10, 11, and/or 12, Sizer School will open an application process for the given grade(s), and will publish the number of seats available.
The total number of students attending Sizer School in a given school year cannot exceed the total number of students in the school’s pre-enrollment report submitted to the Department in the previous spring in accordance with 603 CMR 1.08(5) nor will the school admit students in excess of the school’s approved maximum enrollment.
Sizer School’s application process is not integrated with that of our chartered districts (603 CMR 1.05(11)).
Sizer School’s principal application period is typically from November 1st until March 1st for the following school year. Applications for this principal lottery will not be accepted after March 1st at 11:59pm. Sizer School will re-open applications after March 1st at grades 7, 8, and/or 9 if the principal enrollment process fails to fill the available slots or the generated waitlist from the principal lottery at the respective grade level is exhausted. Note that in the instance in which Sizer School accepts additional applications for grades where a waitlist has already been established from the principal lottery, Sizer will exhaust the initial waitlist prior to holding another lottery for those additional applications.
Public notice of application deadlines is made at least one month in advance of the application deadline. Sizer School posts deadlines for accepting student applications in the enrollment section of the Sizer School website and on the Sizer School calendar (www.sizerschool.org).
To apply for the principal lottery to Sizer School for the upcoming school year, an application must be completed and submitted to the school prior to March 1st. Applications can be filled out in the enrollment section of the school’s website (www.sizerschool.org).
