Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions in his/her life. This section of the website will guide you through our admission process and hopefully answer any questions you may have regarding enrollment at MSE. We are excited to share with you the magic of the Montessori School of Evergreen. Throughout the admission process, we strive to ensure that each student is a good fit in our environment, can fully benefit from an MSE education and adds value to our community.
Tours are generally hosted on Thursday mornings but an alternative time can be arranged if necessary. Please contact Christiane Leitinger, 303-674-0093 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to schedule a tour.
The first step in the application process is completing the application and submitting the application fee, $55 per student. If your child is currently attending another school, please have two teachers complete the Student Recommendation Form. If you are applying for 1st grade through 8th grade, we ask that you complete the Records Request Form for the current school to send MSE an official copy of your child’s records. Once all application materials are received, we can schedule a student visit and parent interview.
All applications are linked below:
When all application materials have been received, we can coordinate a visit day for your student. Students entering Kinder Year through 8th grade will also complete an assessment with our Lower School Division Head on their visit day. The assessment is an additional way for us to evaluate your child’s academic progress and to find out if MSE’s educational environment can meet the needs of your child. (Students are assessed through DIBELS Progress Monitoring, writing sample, math problems, observation, and oral conversation.)
When you enroll your child at MSE, you are joining an amazing community committed to a successful educational experience for every student! We value the importance of the partnership between a school and families; we want to get to know you as well as your child during the admissions process. This 30-minute session provides a great opportunity for us to get to know you and your family and what is important to you in your child’s education.
After the student visit, assessment, and parent interview, we carefully consider each family and student. An acceptance letter is sent once the decision has been made.
Thank you for considering the Montessori School of Evergreen!
