Join us for our all-school Open House Celebration , themed ” Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” Classrooms are open and you can visit classrooms to celebrate the amazing work of our students. Each class has a "quiz challenge" for families to complete. Are you smarter than a kindergartener? You might be surprised!
In some cases, depending on specific class enrollment, it is possible to enroll your child mid-year at The Presentation School. The school takes great pains to make sure that joining our school family mid-year is an easy, exciting and positive experience for your child. To discuss this possibility, please call our Admissions Office at 707-935-0122 x202
We do not have a cutoff age date for candidates for kindergarten. Families with children applying for kindergarten will join us for a two-hour play group in February. Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a screening play group. Children spend time with other applicants in the kindergarten classroom and will be involved in an informal game-like screening process geared to assess developmental readiness for kindergarten. The screening includes subsets on speech and articulation, fine and gross motor control, and cognitive work with numbers and letters. While the play group meets, parents will chat with the head of school and assistant head of school.
We invite students applying to first through eighth grade to visit the school for a half day/day. Students will visit in the grade in which they are currently enrolled. Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a shadow day. The day visit offers each student the opportunity to learn more about Presentation and allows us to learn about your child, both personally and academically. During the visit, students will participate in the activities of the day and also work individually with teachers to demonstrate their skills in math, writing, and reading.
Grades 1-2 visit will be from 8:10-12:45
Grades 3-8 will be from 8:10-3:15
Due to the increasingly high demand for our middle school, the fifth grade is now an entry year at Presentation.
