Step 5: Classroom Visit

Prekindergarten and kindergarten applicants participate in a group visit where they will gather with our teachers for an hour-long activity. During this time, teachers assess the applicants within the social context of the classroom and spend one-on-one time with each applicant.

For grades 1-8, applicants spend a full day at our school, where they are accompanied by a student host and visit classrooms in their current grade level, giving both the applicant and our teachers the opportunity to get to know one another.
