Schedule a meeting and a tour with our Leadership Team
The 2e world includes a number of different learning profiles, academic strengths, talents, and differences in social/emotional development. Frankly, there isn't a single form detailed enough for us to really get to know a student.
An initial meeting and a tour of the school building often takes 30-45 minutes.
We ask families to submit any evaluation reports, IEP/504 documentation, or other documents that will help us understand your child better. This may include report cards and standardized test results.
If you are unsure of what types of documents might be helpful, don't worry- that's a part of the meeting and tour with the Leadership Team.

Spending time at Arete allows students to interact with current students, experience school expectations and the community as a whole. Students can also provide feedback to their families about their comfort and readiness to try a new school environment.
School visits provide an opportunity for teachers to get to know each prospective student on a more personal level and best determine if Arete can meet their social/emotional and academic needs.
