Garden City Admission Policy

Garden City Montessori School welcomes all prospective applicants and their families, and admits students regardless of race, creed, color, and national or ethnic origin, and is non-discriminatory in all its policies and school- administered programs.

Admissions decisions are based on many factors with consideration given to gender, age, and a comfortable fit within a Montessori environment as dictated by the balance of the existing multi-age class. Garden City gives priority consideration to siblings of enrolled students and to children of alumni families, faculty and staff.
