• TWOS PROGRAM

Background

Our Twos Program was launched in the fall of 2013 as a two-year pilot for siblings and families connected to WSMS. Designed in response to the needs of current parents who wanted to start their younger children in school earlier, the pilot program was fully enrolled both years and was a resounding success.

Availability

Our longstanding and continuing commitment to sibling/legacy families results in our having a limited availability in our Twos Program for those new to our school. Sibling/legacy families may apply to the Twos Program in September 2017 for the 2018-2019 school year, while new to WSMS families may apply, based on Twos Program availability, starting December 1, 2017.

Age Requirement

To be eligible for September 2018 enrollment, children must be born between September 1, 2015 and September 1, 2016.
