RMPS practices a policy of “rolling admissions” which means your child can be enrolled at any time during the academic year
(September to June). You will be notified of your child’s admission status by telephone and/or mail
Acceptance of a child is based on several factors:
- Most important is the match of the family's and the school's education goals for the child and our
ability to serve the child, which is evaluated during the interview.
- Returning students and siblings of present students are given priority.
- New applications are selected from the remaining spaces with one of the goals to maintain gender and age balance within the classrooms.
