We evaluate applicants through parent interviews, candidate visits to current grade levels, school reports, teacher evaluations and completion of age-appropriate tasks while visiting Derby. For the younger children, our evaluations are based on everyday tasks such as problem solving, language skills, ability to focus, motor skills and socialization to determine readiness to join a particular class. For older students, we look for demonstrated academic achievement, motivation and social responsibility.
Qualified applicants to whom we cannot offer places will be put in a waiting pool. Should places become available, all active candidates will be considered at that time.
