Enrollment Policy

Carson Montessori School is a free public school, located in Carson City, Nevada, and serves grades K-6.  Enrollment is open to all students in grades K-6 regardless of their county of residence.  Carson Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability or age in its programs and activities.  Carson Montessori School enrolls students in the order in which each pupil’s application is received up to the point at which the school reaches its maximum capacity.  The names of eligible pupils, who submit enrollment applications that are received after the school’s or grade’s capacity has been reached, are put on a waiting list. 
Carson Montessori’s maximum allotted capacity is determined by the amount of space and staff that are available at its site.  The initial year start will allow 10% over CMS’ allotted capped enrollment to maximize its funding potential as well as to be able to provide more staff to ensure a prepared Montessori environment, which encourages a lower teacher to pupil ratio.    
If more students apply for enrollment at Carson Montessori than the number of spaces, which are available, Carson Montessori shall determine which applicants to enroll, as space becomes available, on the basis of the date the completed enrollment package was received.  Each eligible candidate will provide a phone number where his or her family can be reached for notification of their child’s enrollment status.  As a secondary notification, an e-mail address may be provided. 
In order to begin the enrollment process, a candidate’s parents/guardians must take a tour.

Step 1:  Call Carson Montessori at 887-9500 to arrange a visit/tour.
