In order to fully benefit from the Montessori philosophy and school curriculum, it is encouraged that students enter the school with the intention of remaining through grade three. No child, however, shall be denied entrance into our nursery program on the basis of this decision.
Devereux School hosts two Informational Gatherings a year which enable parents to tour the school, meet school staff, and participate in a round table question and answer session. The Informational Gatherings officially mark the beginning of our admissions process and in the past have been a successful way of introducing many parents to our school. Please note the following Informational Gathering dates and times:
Saturday, December 9th, 2017 at 10 AM
Saturday, January 20th, 2018 at 10 AM
“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
If you are unable to attend the Informational Gathering, or wish to meet with our Admissions Director prior to this date, please let us know and every effort will be made to accommodate you.
Following the Informational Gathering, those who are inclined to apply to the school are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible. Once an application for entrance is received, parents will be contacted by the admissions department to arrange a visit. Appointments are typically scheduled in the morning and are limited to one hour to minimize disruption to our students. During this visitation, parents will get a sense of the daily routine of our classes and receive a tour of the school grounds. We ask that you bring your child with you on your visit so that we may have the opportunity to meet him or her.
Applications may be submitted at any time, but no later than February 15, 2018 for consideration to enter in Fall 2018.
Once we have met with all candidates, parents will be notified if their child has been accepted or wait listed for our program. Enrollment decisions are typically made no later than April 1, but can vary depending on volume of applications or scheduled appointments.
