Instructions for Enrolling
Mountain Oak is a public, charter school inspired by Waldorf Methods and it is tuition free. The enrollment process is administered by the Principal, Office Manager and the Class Teacher. To ensure that our curriculum and program are suitable for each individual registrant, we follow a four-step process:
- Parents/guardian interview with the MOS Director/Enrollment Specialist.
- Parents/guardian and student interview with class teacher.
- Parents/guardian and student interview with the Special Education Director, if necessary.
- All required paperwork is completed.
A student is formally admitted only after these interviews have taken place, all required school(s) records have been received, and space has become available in the class. Limits for class size have been established for each grade. If that limit is reached, the student will be put on a waiting list. If a student is applying from out of town/state, a phone interview will take place. Prospective kindergarten students must be five years old by September 1st. It is recommended that children entering first grade are six years old by September 1st . Children whose birthdays fall shortly thereafter are evaluated on an individual basis for readiness for our first grade curriculum.
Required Forms for Admission
Arizona State Law and MOS require the following forms to be completely filled out by the parent/guardian prior to admittance
- A Mountain Oak Enrollment Form with current daytime and emergency phone numbers.

- A ‘Certificate of Immunization’ signed by a licensed physician certifying that the child has received age-appropriate immunizations as required by Law, or a ‘Request of Exemption from Immunization’ form signed by a parent or guardian. Please bring the original and we will copy and certify for our records.
