K3 – Teacher Observation

As part of the admissions process, each incoming K3 student will meet with our K3 teacher for a 15-30 classroom observation during a school day. These observations are intended for us to get to know your student and help assess classroom readiness. Observations may be scheduled Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 a.m. or Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m. Contact the Lower School Admissions Director to set up an observation any time starting in December.
