Experience the Joy of learning

The Joule School  

Welcome to The Joule School (R)

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: COVID-19

Due to recent complications from the novel coronavirus, The Joule School will not be holding classes during the 2020-2021 school year.  New enrollment interviews are temporarily suspended.  

 

The admissions process

The admissions process begins with an initial phone screening, where the School will learn more about your child's individual learning style and academic needs.  This call is also an opportunity for parents to ask questions about the program and curriculum.  The discussion typically takes about 30 minutes, with 15 minutes each reserved for the School and parent to ask questions of each other.   You do not need to prepare for the interview, but it is often helpful to have some recent homework or graded tests available to discuss.   Students who qualify for Joule based on the initial phone screening will then be invited to a shadow day and tour at the School.  Admissions decisions are not finalized until after the shadow day.  

 

We do not schedule individual school tours.  Parents are welcome to observe classes on their child's shadow day, or they may attend an Open House.  Joule holds a public Open House on the first Wednesday in August, October, and February from 9 to 10 a.m.  Advance Registration is not required for an Open House, but you must sign in with a photo ID upon arrival.  Attendance at an Open House is not necessary to apply to the school. 

 

Inclusivity Policy

The Joule School adheres to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal educational opportunity for all students enrolled in the educational programs of the School.  Students and families of any background are welcome in our community, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, creed, religion, or national origin.  Staff and other members of the school community respect the rights of our children to receive an education in an atmosphere that is conducive to learning and free from discriminatory practices.
