Acceptance to MSK
Upon the application process being completed, the Montessori School of Kleinburg will then review the application to determine acceptance which is based on several factors. The most important one is the congruency of the family’s and the school’s educational goals for the child. Please note that returning students and siblings of present students already enrolled at MSK are given priority and children from other Montessori schools are considered next along with children who wish to enrol in the 5 full day program. New applicants are selected with the objective of maintaining a balance of gender, age and needs within the classrooms.
Applicants and prospective families who have been accepted for all reasons other than space availability will be placed on a waiting list. You will be notified by the school when an opening becomes available. Administration and management reviews each application and then contacts families to arrange for an interview with the family and their child. Should the child attend another private school, an assessment is completed with the Head of Elementary Teacher of MSK. An assessment is also completed for all children ages 4 and up regardless of previous school experience.
Families will be notified of acceptance with a phone call and letter stating important information. Class placement will be made available in the July/August mail-out package. Also included in the package, parents will also receive a Parent Handbook, School Calendar, Newsletter and other pertinent information regarding the school year as part of the package.
