Things for Families to Consider Before Enrolling
Changing schools is a big decision! We want your student to have a great experience with us and make their transition into our school successful. Student retention, happiness, and academic success are essential to all of us. The following is a list of things to consider before you submit your enrollment application:
Is your child ready for a rigorous academic environment?
If your student is on an IEP or has a 504, will their academic goals be met with our Resource Room-only student services?
How attached is your child to his/her current school, friends, and teachers?
How is your child’s ability to transition to a new environment?
Does your child have siblings in another school, meaning multiple drop-offs and pick-ups to coordinate? Our school does not provide school bus service.
How does our school location impact your commute to/from work?
Is your family fully committed to fieldwork which may include an overnight trip? Parent volunteers are used for fieldwork, but we cannot guarantee that you will always be allowed to attend.
We have a different academic day than the other public and private schools in the area. While we do give a morning and an afternoon recess (K-5th) in addition to a lunch break, the kids are tired at the end of the day. However, they adjust, especially with the help of extra sleep at night and a healthy lunch at school. We also have a different calendar than our district schools. There are times we may be on campus when the district has days off. Our school receives only 80% of the state funding allocated to public school students. Because of this, we rely on our family community for volunteer service and fundraising efforts to bridge our financial gap. While we do our best to cut our costs, fundraising, including donations, is critical to our success.
