Kindergarten and home-schooled applicants who did not attend school previously must submit copies of a birth certificate, immunization record, and social security number to the office before the application process is complete.
  • Students entering grades 1-8 will be asked to take testing assessments in Reading and/or Math to determine readiness for a grade level.
  • Grade placement for incoming students will be determined by assessment examinations, current report cards, and possibly teacher recommendations. MCDS reserves the right to determine grade placement after reviewing all pertinent information.
