You can start the process by coming to one of our monthly tours, conducted on the second Friday of every month from 8:30-9:30AM. You can arrange your appointment by calling (415) 897-8099 or emailing Donna Randle Donna.Randle@gslsnovato.org. We also accommodate private tours dates as needed.
If you are a new family and have toured and would like to move forward with your application, you can complete and submit the Middle School Application along with the application fee of $50.00. The early admissions applications for a rising 6th graders is March 1, 2019. After the passing date, applications will be considered on an individual basis.
In addition to the online application, we also require that your child’s current teacher complete the Teacher Recommendation Form and have it returned directly to us. We also require that you submit copies of your child’s progress reports, report cards, and standardized test scores from his or her previous school.
Once the application is initiated, we arrange a shadow date for the prospective student, so he/she can have a day on the GSLS middle school campus meeting teachers and other students. With the Covid-19 SIP, we have changed from the shadow day to the student recording a video of themselves with various prompts. The prompts will be provided as well as a link to upload a video. This will give us another way to learn about the student.
When the whole application process is completed, the Admissions Committee will meet to review the prospective student. Other important considerations for admissions are gender balance as well as social and educational dynamics of the class.
Marlon Morales will contact you via email regarding our acceptance decision for your child.
We do have financial aid available. We work with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis to determine your family’s financial need. After you fill out an application with FACTS, we receive a confidential report outlining your financial situation based on the information obtained in your application and supporting tax documents. If you would like to be considered for financial aid, please begin the application process here.
If you are current family at our main campus, no application is needed for the middle school. Priority registration for our current students will open February 15th, 2020 and you will receive the registration form prior to this date. On February 15, you will be able to register at our main campus for the 2020-2021 school year.
