This is your child’s opportunity to get to know Greene Street Friends School.  It also gives the school a chance to get to know your child. The length of the visit will vary from a few hours to a full day, depending upon the grade. Visits will begin in November and continue through the winter. 

Applicants to Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten can come for a morning visit with a currently enrolled class, or to a special Friday morning playdate for applicants only. After you submit your application, please call the Admission Office to arrange your child’s visit.

parent interview

While your child is visiting the classroom, you will have the opportunity to talk with the Admission Director. You should expect to chat for about 30-45 minutes about your child and what you are seeking in a school community.


testing
Greene Street Friends School requires that all students be tested for admission. A member of the Admission staff as well as teachers will work with your child one-on-one in such areas as reading, writing, and math, as appropriate for their age and grade. This assessment will occur during your child’s visit.


teacher recommendation and release of information forms

If your child is a Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade applicant, one recommendation form is required. If your child is a 6th grade through 8th grade applicant, two forms are required, one from a language arts teacher and one from a math or science teacher. Please provide the teacher with a stamped envelope, addressed to Greene Street Friends School.
