Transferring from Another School 2017-03-17T11:04:42+00:00

Transferring from Another School

Families are welcomed into the community immediately with a New Parent Night in the spring followed by Dessert Parties and Class Potlucks in the fall.  New families are also encouraged to attend Arbor’s World Fair community event held every April at the LaVista campus.


We are delighted that you are considering continuing your child’s Montessori education. We welcome the addition of transfer students to our community and work hard to ensure the transition is an easy one for both the student and the parents.


Toddler and Primary Transfers

Arbor accepts transfer students from both Montessori and non-Montessori schools in the Toddler program.

Arbor accepts transfer students from other non-Montessori schools on a case by case basis in our Primary program.  We accept children at any age from accredited Montessori schools into our Primary program.

Elementary Transfers

Because Montessori pedagogy is sequential (materials and the curriculum build upon each other), children who have not attended a Montessori Primary program would not be able to successfully participate in a Montessori Elementary program.  Therefore, Arbor only accepts transfer Elementary students from accredited Montessori schools.

Adolescent Program Transfers

We accept transfer student from Montessori and non-Montessori schools for enrollment in 7th grade.

All transfer students have to add the following documents to their application:

Transferring  Forms

Head of School form

Authorization to release records

Teacher referral form by class

Teacher Referral Form-Primary Program

Teacher Referral Form-Elementary Program

Teacher Referral Form-Adolescent Program
