Admissions Assessments
for students entering Grades 1-4


Admissions Assessment

Please arrive at 8:15 a.m. at the earliest. Your child’s visit will begin and end in the Shepard Welcome Center (our main administration building), at 3901 E. Stanford Dr, just west of 40th Street. All applicants must wear masks, and we will check temperatures upon arrival. Any student with a temperature exceeding 100.4° will be asked to reschedule their assessment. We cannot make any exceptions. Students will be socially distanced in accordance with the guidelines established in our Smart Restart plan. The assessment will begin promptly at 8:30. Parents are welcome to leave campus or wait in their vehicles in the PCDS parking lot. We ask parents to return by 10:30; with the exception of 1st grade, the assessments will conclude between 10:30 and 11:00. Parents of 1st grade applicants are asked to return to campus at 11:30 and will receive a separate email with 1st grade specific instructions.

We will provide everything your child will need for the assessment. We recommend your child has breakfast before coming to school. We will provide a small snack for the children during the morning.
