Application Process

Grades 5-8 Class Visiting & Assessment

Shore’s goal in screening applicants for any grade level is a happy and successful placement in our educational community. With this goal in mind, we invite Grade 5 - 8 candidates for a day of class visiting (9:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.) to round out our personal understanding of each child your child to experience our community and their peer group at Shore. 

Candidates visit in classrooms of their current grade so that they are with their peers and will be assigned a host "buddy."
