The process begins by submitting an application, along with an application fee of $50 to the admissions office. The Director of Admissions will follow up to schedule a Family Pre-enrollment Interview. This interview provides parents with an opportunity to share information about their child’s abilities in various areas including behavior, socialization, problem solving, and coping, as well as facts concerning academic/cognitive/intellectual skills. Complete sincerity during this process is fundamental to achieving mutual success. This is an opportunity for parents to share all available knowledge of their child including any suspected or previously diagnosed conditions. To gather additional information, we will request transcripts to be sent to the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School along with a Teacher Recommendation form to be completed by the applicant’s current teacher.
Following the Family Pre-enrollment Interview, we will encourage applicants to spend the day with us and become more familiar with MJGDS. Acceptance letters will go out at the beginning of February along with an enrollment contract. The contract and enrollment fee will be due 2 weeks later to secure a spot into our program.
