Schedule a Tour of Derby
The best way to begin the process of evaluating whether Derby is right for your family is to visit our campus.
Tours of the school and parent appointments are scheduled during school days. Tours run for approximately 40 minutes and appointments last for about 30 minutes. During tours, parents have the opportunity to view our facilities, ask questions and observe student/teacher interactions in the classrooms to see for themselves what distinguishes a Derby education.
We hope you will take a few minutes to continue browsing our website to learn more about our programs - and we encourage you to contact us to schedule a tour today.
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.
