After the application has been submitted, you will receive further information about the following steps.
Step 3 - Admission Testing
All applicants to grades 1-4 are required to take an age-appropriate admission test. The Admission Office will contact you to schedule this testing.
Step 4 - Report Cards
Report Cards: Parents will need to request a copy of the applicant's current grades and a copy of grades from the two previous years (if applicable). After December 1, you will complete and sign a Transcipt Release form and deliver it to your child's current school.
Step 5 - School Visits
School Visit: Each applicant is required to visit our school for a full day. This visit will allow the applicant to experience a typical day of school here at GDS. Students will visit their current grade. A short writing, math, and reading assessment will be completed on the visit day. Applicants will also have the opportunity to meet with one of our Middle School Administrators. Once the application has been submitted, we will contact you to schedule the visit.
