Letter from the Director of Enrollment Management

Thank you for taking this opportunity to learn more about  The McGillis School. We are pleased that you are considering our school for your child’s educational needs. On behalf of our faculty and staff, I want you to know that we believe it is truly a privilege to be a part of each child’s learning here at The McGillis School.

As you come to know our school, you will discover that we are more than just a place to learn; we are a community. McGillis students in kindergarten through eighth grade have the opportunity to excel academically while learning the importance of productive group dynamics and social responsibility. Central to our core mission is providing learning experiences that empower children to become engaged and enthusiastic about their learning.

The McGillis School's philosophy is informed by Jewish values and culture.  This philosophy creates a context for all students to engage in understanding the meaning and significance of a tradition historically committed to intellectual growth and moral development.  Our student body, faculty, and families are a healthy patchwork of races, religions, and ethnic backgrounds. The diversity at McGillis provides an opportunity for children of all backgrounds to experience and embrace different cultures and lifestyles.

We hope that you will schedule a visit to our campus and let The McGillis School speak for itself.  Our admission process is personal and individualized.  We believe that our success as an educational community begins with your careful assessment of our school relative to your child's needs and your expectations, as well as our understanding of how we can provide the best education for your child. Having been a part of The McGillis School community for many years, I look forward to sharing with you the difference our school makes in the lives of children and families.

Thank you for your interest in The McGillis School.  We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Sincerely yours,

Sallie Warmath
