ADMISSIONS POLICY

River East School is an inclusive program that values diversity and seeks to create a school that reflects the world around us. River East School does not discriminate based on race, religion, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, medical condition, creed, color, national origin, or ability. When filling our classes, we strictly adhere to the legal limit of class size and, as much as possible, strive to achieve gender and age-range balance in our classroom.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING...

  • In order to be enrolled, children must be no younger than 2 years old by their initial start date.

  • In order to be considered “enrolled,” all required forms and paperwork must be completely filled out and on file in the school office. 

 

 

 

  • Adhere to all the rules and guidelines set by River East School and outlined in the Parent Handbook. 

  • Fulfill all financial obligations in a timely manner.

 

River East School reserves the right to determine whether or not we are a fit for your family and may discontinue our offer for enrollment at any time. 

IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN ENROLLMENT THE FOLLOWING IS REQUIRED:

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

1. TOUR RIVER EAST SCHOOL

Attend a scheduled tour at River East School, where you will learn about our philosophies and approach to learning, as well as visit our space to see for yourself what we are all about! You can sign up for these tours on our website at www.rivereastschool.org. This will also give you the opportunity to ask questions and meet some members of the RES Team. You must attend a tour prior to submitting an application.

 

2. APPLICATION FORM & FEE

 If you feel that River East School is a good fit for your family and their needs, we ask that you fill out an application.

Application Fee: $125 (non-refundable) | Checks made payable to River East School.

Please mail your completed application and application fee to: 

       

RIVER EAST SCHOOL

4316 La Clede Avenue | Los Angeles | CA | 90039

 

3. WAITLIST

Once your application has been received, your child will officially be added to the RES waitlist. This waitlist rolls over from the previous school year, and children who have aged out of the program are removed. If you are put on the waitlist, you do not need to reapply for successive years.

4. NEXT SCHOOL YEAR ADMISSIONS 

Once we have determined how many spots will be open for the next year, RES will reach out to families on the waitlist regarding enrollment availability. When filling our classes, we strictly adhere to the legal limit of class size and, as much as possible, strive to achieve gender and age-range balance in our classroom. Should you have interest in an earlier start date, please let us know and we will keep you informed accordingly.

5. ENROLLMENT 

If accepted into River East, we will notify you via formal email. We plan to have our roster finalized in May of the current year for the upcoming school year. In order to secure enrollment, every Applicant will receive the Admissions Agreement and Enrollment Forms directly from Admissions@RiverEastSchool.org. Forms must be printed, signed, scanned, and returned to Admissions@RiverEastSchool.org and a physical copy must be delivered or mailed to:

 

River East School | 4316 La Clede Avenue | Los Angeles | CA | 90039

The Enrollment Agreement is not complete until each Applicant has executed this process. The enrollment forms will allow the Applicant to choose a method of payment (lump sum or 10-monthly installments). Once the Applicant has selected the payment option, RES will send the Applicant an invitation to join and create an account through “Procare” (an online platform) in order to complete payment of the New Student Enrollment Fee and applicable tuition. Enrollment neither explicitly nor implicitly obligates RES to offer the Student enrollment for any succeeding school year. 

 

After enrollment is finalized, and your spot is secured, parents/guardians will be sent a hard copy of the River East School Parent Handbook, as well as the following licensing forms:

1. Notification of Parents’ Rights form (LIC 995)

2. Personal Rights form (LIC 613A)
