Grades Applicants. A student applying for Grades 1-8 will be invited to visit the classroom for three consecutive school days.
4. Parent Interview with the Class Teacher
This is an excellent opportunity for families to ask questions about the school, discuss the guiding principles of Waldorf education, and share information about their child. In turn, teachers share observations about the student’s experience in the classroom.
After the interview, the teacher will notify the Admission’s Office regarding acceptance or next steps. Within seven business days, a letter of acceptance, conditional acceptance, acceptance pending space availability or non-acceptance will be sent.
