All new students are required to have a physical exam.

 

A complete certificate of health for all new students entering school will be required within 30 days after school begins.  Students in any grade may be asked to have a physical examination if a record of such an examination is not received from another school or if the need is indicated by excessive absences. Physical examination forms are available at the school office.  Forms must be completed by a physician and returned to the school.

 

ACADEMIC PLACEMENT

 

Appropriate academic placement of each student is a fundamental principle of education.  Each child's social, physical, mental and emotional readiness should be considered.  Other factors to be studied are the student academic achievement, skills and abilities, and actual performance.  After reviewing cumulative records a student may be asked to demonstrate proficiency in the areas of mathematics and English by satisfactorily passing grade level tests in those areas.

 

The school reserves the right, after testing an applicant and counselling with the parents, to determine the grade placement suitable for the child.
