• K-8 Exam School Appeal

    Families who applied to a K-8 exam school and took the exam, but did not receive their desired placement may petition for admission consideration.

    The school’s decision is final. Appeal deadlines are strictly followed. For fall 2021 admission, the key petition dates are:

    Petition window opens: Monday July 19
    Petition window closes: 11:59 p.m. Friday August 13
