Applying to Both Sister Schools
Battery Park Montessori has a sister school – Pine Street School – just a short walk from us, in the heart of the Financial District. While each school offers unique programming, they are joined pedagogically by our belief that students learn best when empowered to be independent and active participants in their own learning. Visit the website for our sister school to better understand the options you have and view a comparison of our two programs.
We invite you to consider both of our schools if your child is entering a Twos or Preschool Program. You can find more information about applying to our sister school, Pine Street School, here. The application requirements are unique to each school, so please take time to review those requirements carefully.
You must apply to each school separately. Once requirements are completed for a school, you will receive an admissions decision for that school shortly afterwards. If your child is admitted, you will have two weeks (14 calendar days) to accept the invitation to enroll in that school. If we do not receive your acceptance in that timeframe, we will offer that spot to another family. If you receive admission to one of our schools but wish to wait for the decision from the sister school, you may do so, but please bear in mind the two-week decision timeframe does not change. If you do have a preference of one sister school over the other, kindly let us know before both applications are considered.
