Student Placement for 2022-2023

As we work toward building classes for next year, we consider input from both staff and parents. If you would like to share information about the way your child learns or qualities in a teacher that you feel would help your student succeed, please complete this form by June 8, 2022. While we cannot honor requests for specific teachers, we do consider parents’ input about learning styles.

When completing the form, please follow these guidelines:

  • Share the qualities of a teacher and classroom environment that would best meet your child’s needs.
  • Let us know if you feel that your child should be separated from another student. We will take that request into consideration. Please remember that best friends do not necessarily belong in the same instructional group.

Please note: Because of enrollment changes over the summer, class assignments will not be finalized until mid-August.
