middle grade admissions

Thank you for your interest in the Middle Grades at NEST+m. At NEST+m, intellectualism, inclusivity, collaboration and exploration within and beyond our school community enable our students to lead lives filled with learning, discovery and purpose.

The application process for the 2020-2021 school year will begin in the fall. Open Houses for prospective families will be held in October and November; these dates will be posted in late summer 2020.

As NEST+m is a city-wide screened school, we follow the admissions rubric below:
