The Arbor School of Arts & Sciences follows the letter and spirit of all equal opportunity and civil rights laws, seeking students of diverse backgrounds, interests, and talents with potential for flourishing in and contributing to a creative and challenging learning community. Admission to the school depends upon appropriately mature intellectual, emotional, and social capacities. Arbor School seeks to realize its goals by admitting students who exhibit distinctive intellectual and creative potential and demonstrate a growing skill for working harmoniously with others. It is ultimately on the basis of the school's evaluation of its ability to enhance the growth of the child and the child's ability to enrich the school community that admission is granted.
