Student Profile Form

 Student Profile Form

There is much to consider in the creation of the composition of each class for the upcoming year and this takes us several weeks to work through each spring. We look at physical, academic, second language, and behavioral considerations. We consider children’s personalities and how well they have worked together in the past. Gender ratios help us to balance out the rest. Finally, class sizes are considered so that each grade level class is similar in size. The current year’s teachers play a large role in creating classes based on their experience working with the children in the school. The key is to find the best balance for all of those factors within each class to help ensure that each child, and teacher, has the most successful year possible. Following extensive discussions regarding the merit of accommodating requests for specific teachers, it has been determined that the volume of requests make it impossible to maintain optimal class balance both with respect to size and composition. As such, we will not be granting teacher requests by name. Since all classes must be balanced to ensure the best possible educational environment, this will be the priority when class lists are created. At the same time, we believe that you can provide us with invaluable insight with respect to what we should consider when placing your child. This form allows for communication of considerations that lie outside of requesting a specific teacher.  The administration of Agnes Davidson, with the consultation of the teachers, will be creating the class lists.

Due to the tight timelines regarding class list creation, Student Profile Forms will not be accepted after April 25.
