Elementary education is decisive in the creation of character and development of the habits of the mind. Maple Street’s outstanding core curriculum prepares students to excel both locally and at the nation’s finest prep schools and universities. Our graduates are known as exceptionally well-prepared students who stand out not only in their ability to meet the rigors of high school and college but also through their valuable contributions to both classroom learning and campus leadership.
Maple Street School’s dynamic learning environment and diversity of students creates a truly remarkable school experience. Maple Street School faculty members bring with them educational and pedagogical excellence to the classroom. Our faculty discovers what is unique about each child and then explores how best to tap into his or her talent and spirit of inquiry. It is through an authentic parent- school partnership that our students become genuine strategists and interactive thinkers, resulting in a school atmosphere steeped in academic excellence and joyful learning.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about Maple Street, and we encourage you to complete an inquiry so that we can be in touch with you about the upcoming admission season.
The Admissions Process
Maple Street School admissions process begins with an inquiry and/or tour. We want families to see and understand our mission in action as we seek students who are motivated and have a positive attitude toward learning and families who are willing to be a part of their child’s school life.

After receiving the information packet, interested parents should schedule an interview and tour with the Director of Admissions, Julie Mackey, by calling the school office at 802-362-7137. We encourage admissions visits for parents and students between October and March.
Tours and Parent Interview
This is an opportunity to learn about our community of learners at Maple Street School and to explore with the Director of Admissions whether Maple Street will be a productive educational setting for the candidate child.
The application should be completed by parents and returned with a fee of $50 to Maple Street School, 322 Maple Street, Manchester Center, VT 05255. We ask parents to deliver The Release of Student Records form and the grade -appropriate AISNE student evaluation form to your child’s current school at your earliest convenience.
Upon completion of the student application, the Director of Admissions will schedule a time for the candidate to visit. Kindergarten candidates are invited to a readiness group assessment in early February. Candidates for first grade will be invited to visit the Kindergarten class for a partial day visit. For second through eighth grades we invite each candidate for admission to visit the school for one full day. Assessments will be administered to help determine readiness and skill level in math, writing and reading.
Communication Of Admissions Decision
Returning students secure places by March 1, and new candidates whose applications are complete are informed of the admissions decision by March 15. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis for remaining spaces. When a class is filled, qualified candidates will be placed in a candidate pool.
A student is enrolled when the enrollment contract and the non-refundable deposit are received. This contract and fee secure a place and also secure a financial aid offer.
