    Please bring the student's birth certificate, shot records and latest physical, two proofs of New Bedford address, transcripts, and parent/guardian photo ID. Upon review of the Home Language Survey, it will be determined if your student needs to be administered an English Language Assessment. Once the student is cleared to be in school, the family will be notified by the school as to what date the student may start.
