Schools

Your school age children are eligible to attend public schools at no cost in the town in which you live. The school year runs from September through June, although children may enter school during the school year when you arrive. Public school generally starts with kindergarten for children age 5, and goes through twelfth grade. The School Department in the town in which you are living can provide registration information.

WHOI's Committee on Work and Family Life offers information on issues pertaining to family needs of the Institutions' employees and students. Refer to their website for resources on summer programs for children in the Woods Hole area, child care, day care, and elder care.
