Drop By for a Visit

Registration Requirements

All new students must complete our online enrollment form. Please be prepared with the following documentation:

  • Child’s original birth certificate
  • Immunization records
  • Proof of residency
  • Withdrawal forms (if transferring from another school)

School Choice

We know you want the best for your child, and we are proud of the education we offer at Ralph C. Mahar & School Union 73. We honor and welcome students from within or outside of our area.* For participation in the School Choice program, please complete the School Choice application.

If you are not a district resident (residing in the towns of Orange, Petersham, New Salem, or Wendell) and would like more information about the School Choice program, please call (978) 544-2920 ext. 3.
