How are openings filled?

Private school applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How are students placed in classes?
Final decisions for classroom placement are made in the best interest of the child by the Administrative Team. Parents who have information relating to this decision should make an appointment with their child’s current teacher to discuss the issues.
The teacher will then bring those issues to the placement meetings where the final decisions will be made in the spring of each year. Changes in classroom assignments will only be made if the well-being of the child is seriously affected.
