Re: Denied admission to public school???

Be careful, because Montessori schools and charter schools are not one and the same! Most Montessori schools are essentially private schools, and can deny admission for any variety of reasons- not the least of which is a student not being at-or-above grade level in any or all subject areas.

Charter schools, though some do receive some public funding, are also another form of private school, just typically with less stringent admission guidelines than those of your typical 'private school'.

Do find out exactly what type of school you're dealing with here before going any further, especially if they said that he would likely not be accepted before finding out about any disability. That means that they are not singling him out because of a disability, they are simply stating their admissions guidelines.

Much luck to you!
