Student Placement Survey

We do not take requests for specific teachers; however, your input does carry significant weight and will help to ensure we find a good match for your child. Placements are based on a variety of factors including: student need, balanced classes, and input from parents and teachers.

As we begin to place students in classes for next year, it would be helpful for you to describe the learning needs of your child. Is there anything you would like the school to know about how your child learns or any special circumstance we should be aware of? Please complete this Student Placement Survey.

Please submit your form no later than, Monday, May 9th.
