The NHSP admissions process consists of two parts:
The school has a rolling admission policy. Please see the calendar for details. We suggest to apply in the first cycle.
We would like to meet your preschooler on the tour. If this is not possible, we will need to arrange a special appointment for the child to “Meet the Teacher” after submitting the application.
For Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, the Kindergarten teacher conducts the Gesell Developmental Screening. This screening helps us determine the student’s developmental level and readiness in the four domains of development: cognitive, language, motor and social emotional. This process usually takes about 45 minutes.
For students entering grades 1-8, we assess their math and reading skills using the STAR Math and STAR Reading tests. These tests indicate a child’s level of proficiency in these foundational subject areas and is one predictor of success in our academic program. This testing process usually takes about one hour.
For students entering grades 1-8, they will complete an age appropriate writing sample.
Please review the How To Apply page and select the admissions checklist that is relevant to your student’s grade level to know the additional items need to complete their application.
To secure a spot, you must first complete the Admissions process and receive a letter of acceptance. Once this occurs, you will be able to enroll your child through the school’s Enrollment process. This is explained in more detail in the acceptance letter. To begin the Admissions process, please submit an online application. Also, please refer to the Admissions Calendar for important information regarding admissions cycle deadlines.
We recommend that families submit their applications in the first admissions cycle to have a better chance of securing a spot due to the possibility of limited space availability in certain classes.
It varies from class to class. We will know the space availability after the re-enrollment process with our current families in February. Again, with an application submitted in the first Admissions cycle, there is a better chance to secure whatever spaces are available. Please refer to the Admissions Calendar for important dates and deadlines.
For children applying to Preschool through Kindergarten, they must be:
It varies by class. In our early childhood program, the maximum ratio is 1:12. There are two teachers in each classroom. For elementary and middle school, the average ratio is no more than 1:20.
Yes, we consider applicants of the L-1 visa status whose parents maybe working or studying here temporary from abroad.
