Creative Science School


Your child can begin at Creative Science School in kindergarten or transfer in at any grade level. There are typically 50 kindergarten slots available each year and a handful of spaces available in grades 1-8.

Information Nights

Information nights for the 2017-2018 school year are:

  • Thursday, January 19, 2017 6:00-7:00pm (incoming Kindergarten only, tour sign ups, closed classrooms)
  • Wednesday, January 18, 2017 6:00-7:00pm (1st-8th, open classrooms)
  • Monday, January 23, 2017 & Tuesday, January 24, 2017 (Kindergarten tours)

Because of the high demand, we cannot accommodate individual tours or classroom observations. Incoming Kindergarten families can sign up for school tours at our information session. Kindergarten tours will take place on January 23rd and 24th. Incoming 1st-8th grade families will have an opportunity to see the school during their information session.
