If you are applying for Kindergarten through grade five, please submit the Confidential Teacher Recommendation and School Records Release Form to your child's current school.

- Student Visit. Once your application is complete, a member of the admission team will be in touch to schedule a student visit (ages three and over). Child applicants to the Primary, Kindergarten, Elementary, and Middle School programs are required to visit the classroom. These visits vary in length according to the program to which your child is applying. Once your application is complete, a member of the admission team will be in touch to schedule a student visit (ages three and over). Middle School applicants must present their portfolio during the student visit. Deadline is February 11, 2016.
- Parent Interview. Once your application is complete, a member of the admission team will be in touch to schedule a parent interview. When you enroll your child at MSD, your family joins an amazing community of parents committed to a successful partnership between school and home. We value that relationship and therefore recognize the importance of getting to know you as well as your child during the admissions process. To that end, we require that parents attend a 30-minute meeting with a member of the admissions staff so that we can learn more about you. During this meeting we are also available to answer questions regarding our educational philosophy, program hallmarks and logistics, or any other questions you may have about your child’s application to MSD. Deadline is February 11, 2016.
- Notification Dates.
Middle School Notification (Grades 6-8) Wednesday, March 2, 2016
