*Applications submitted after the early acceptance deadline for the Kindergarten may not be eligible for our group assessment, which takes place in early December.
What does the group assessment entail?
Students will join teachers in small groups based on the year they will be entering in the fall. The assessments typically include a series of developmentally-appropriate academic tasks and an observation period as students interact with the other children in the group. Some of the qualities our teachers look for are curiosity, kindness, respect and enthusiasm.
A parent interview is a required element of the admissions process; both parents are encouraged to attend.
