Admission Process

We welcome families to visit the school for a tour throughout the year. Wait pool applicants will be offered placement in the school in February/March, based on availability. Students entering the school at the Kindergarten level or above must have previous Montessori education which is continuous.

A complete application contains the following:

  • Completed application form
  • Copies of the previous year’s report card as well as most recent report card (if relevant)
  • Administration Fee
  • Copy of applicant’s birth certificate or proof of Canadian status

Upon receipt of a complete admission package, a child will be added to the wait pool. Parents will be asked to participate in a classroom observation, if they have not already done so, to confirm that the school meets their expectations and to serve as a basis for discussion when meeting with the Head of School.

Teaching staff may request that an interview and assessment take place with the student prior to acceptance of the application. Admission decisions are made solely by the Admissions Committee of North Star Montessori Elementary School (NSMES).
