The admission process starts with a scheduled tour of the school. We recommend that this first visit, if possible, be without your child. During this time, parents can talk with one of the directors about the approach, philosophy, and methods of the school. Interested parents fill out an application and pertinent forms. Elementary applicants will visit the school and tour the Elementary program areas.
We invite you to take the first step and contact our Director of Admissions, James Ward, at (425) 392-3866, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, to schedule your tour at Arbor Montessori School.
Acceptance – All sources of information, including available openings, are considered when making decisions about student acceptances. Arbor Montessori School siblings are given a priority, as are students with previous Montessori experience. Families will be notified by the first week in April regarding status of acceptance to Arbor Montessori School and obligation for registration and payments. A placement is secured upon completion of the Enrollment Contract and receipt of tuition deposit. Acceptance is conditional during the first month of school attendance. All Preschool through Kindergarten students are required to attend a two week summer session (more detail in acceptance information). This opportunity acquaints the new student with Arbor Montessori School and classroom procedures while giving him or her a head start for September.
