Chatham Elementary Schools

Asked by Pablo, Chatham, NJ Mon Jan 30, 2012

What is the criteria to be accepted in one of the three elementary schools in Chatham? I would like to know if I rent for a year and my children go to one school, and then I buy a home somewhere else in Chatham, are they force to transfer? What is the criteria to attend either Milton, Southern or Washington Schools?

I do not live in Chatham, but I am quite sure the school district works the same there as it does in my market area. The only criteria for each of the elementary schools is address. In Basking Ridge, if you start the year in one school and you move to another district in the same town they typically let you finish the year where you started - but the next year you have to move your child to the appropriate school in the district.

I hope that helps.

Hi Pablo,
I am an agent in Chatham and I also live in Chatham. The school your child would attend is determined by your address for k through 3rd grade. There are three k-3rd grade schools, one 4th and 5th grade school, one middle school, and one high school. Hope this helps.
