Dear Prospective Members of the WEM Community,
The WEM Application Questionnaire is intended to help WEM best understand the goals your family have set forth for your child’s educational future. We use this information as a means to align your child with the classroom environment that best meets your family’s unique and individual needs.
Every one of our highly qualified and classically Montessori trained teachers at WEM bring their own unique personalities, teaching styles and expertise to each of our classrooms. We believe strongly that having a diverse body of teachers works well to meet the needs of every child, and we are committed to aligning your child with the most appropriate classroom at WEM.
WEM is one of only a few Montessori schools in the State of Washington accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS). Because students at WEM complete programs in 3-year cycles, admission to WEM is highly competitive, and WEM has limited availability each new school year. While we would love to accept all applicants, priority enrollment is given to current and returning WEM students completing the 3-year cycle, alumni and their siblings, and then to students with previous Montessori experience. Admission decisions for new families are largely based on the parents’ long term commitment to the completion of WEM’s 3-year programs. Completion of this survey plays a vital role in the decision the enrollment team makes when admitting students to WEM. Incomplete surveys will not be considered for admission.
Upon receipt, our admissions team will review your “online” application and determine your acceptance status at WEM. You will be notified of your child’s acceptance determination by April 1, 2020. If accepted, you will receive all remaining paperwork to complete enrollment at WEM. Completion of this paperwork will confirm enrollment for your child at WEM for the 2020-2021 school year.
