Enrolment Limits and Random Selection Process:
City Park School has limited classroom space for expansion in 2020-21. If more students register for our Montessori Program than we are able to accommodate, the following process will be followed.
Selection of students through random selection (Lottery)
- As many students as possible will be accepted up to enrolment limits
- Each class will be determined through lottery in keeping with the following criteria:
- In order to maintain the integrity of the Montessori methodology, each class will maintain a majority of students with previous Montessori experience
- Age (grade) balance in each classroom when possible
- Consideration for siblings currently enrolled in the program (if possible)
- A waiting list at each age level will be established through the lottery process
