Class Placement 2023 - 2024

The process of classroom placement for the 2023-2024 academic year will begin in the spring and continue through July as new students are admitted to Manzano Day School.

This is a complex process and is completed with carefully considered input from parents, teachers, and administrators. Factors such as heterogeneous learning styles, students with special learning needs, boy/girl ratio, and social relationships among students play an important role in determining the composition of a given class.

The following questionnaire is intended to gather information from parents concerning their child and their observations related to their child’s learning behaviors and is an important part of the data used during the placement process. The focus of this questionnaire is on the parental observations of the child’s needs. 

This input should not include the name of a specific teacher choice. 

In fact, the inclusion of such a request may hinder our ability to find the best class placement for your child. Teacher selection will be made by the school based upon your information and our knowledge as professionals.

This form will be available to families beginning March 10, 2023 at 8:00 a.m.

The completed form must be submitted no later than Monday, April 17, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.

Completion of this information in a timely manner gives us the best opportunity to consider your input. Our ability to consider your input regarding class placement will be limited by not receiving your form by this deadline. Only children whose contracts have been returned will be placed in classes for the 2023-2024 school year.
