I would recommend calling the school and scheduling an appointment for a tour. Ms. Palombo (Head of School) has always been gracious and welcomed myself and my husband for a meeting for whatever our concerns. She spent a lot of time with us and her one-on-one attention along with our kids enthusiasm for the school is what helped us decide to send our children to Delano. We just had a good feeling of Ms. Palombo, her passion for students and her school. The meeting was not stressful at all. Our children were given the opportunity to spend a day at the school to see how they liked the school. They spend the day in all the classes of their grade with a student leader to show them around and truly get the feel of being a student at Delano. After this day, your child will know if they want to be there and then it will be easy to sign up. Our kids were convinced and so so excited after that day. I'll never forget their excitement about them telling me about their day. Loved it.
The admission process for us was a true pleasure and very informative. I was not expecting such a level of professionalism and commitment from a School, to ensure that our child would be a fit for the School and vice-versa. Mrs Palombo does take the time to go thru the School Portfolio and also answers during the process. Each part is explained in its entirety and this gives us, the parents, an opportunity to decide whether our child will be a good fir for that school and vice versa, or not. Also the school tour is very comprehensive and we get a true feeling of how the day-to-day activities are, how the school life it. There is absolute nothing I would change about their admissions process. It is very professional, detailed and welcoming!
