Class Placement 2020 - 2021

The process of classroom placement for the 2020-2021 academic year begins in late spring and continues 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. Balancing factors such as boy/girl ratio, students with special learning needs, heterogeneous learning styles, and social relationships among students play an important role in determining the make-up 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 completed form must be submitted no later than May 4, 2020. Completion of this information in a timely manner gives us the best opportunity to consider your input. Failure to return the form by this date will severely limit our ability to respond to your input regarding class placement. Only children whose contracts have been returned will be placed in classes for the 2020-2021 school year.
