Guamani utilizes the SRA Reading and Math achievement test for admission to grades 2 through 11. Applicants should score at least a 50 percentile in both tests in order to be considered for admission. Our curriculum is English-based, as it is our primary language of instruction. Guamani Private School serves children with average to gifted academic ability. The school seeks students who thrive in a challenging academic environment, The school seeks an appropriate mix of backgrounds in each class. The school encourages applications from families of all income levels.
Parents of applicants must have available at home a computer and access to the internet for their child to perform the academic tasks assigned at school and for parents to keep informed of grades, activities, news, and special announcements.
Admission is based on the following:
1. A personal interview with the applicant and one or both parents
2. Results of the entrance exam
3. Previous school records and teacher and director and or principal’s recommendation
Every person who desires to enroll in G.P.S. for the coming year is a “candidate for admission,” whether or not he is presently enrolled at Guamaní Private School.
For newly applicants:
The first step in the admission process is that the parents of the applicant must pick up a copy of the application at the administration office or download the application form provided in the like on this page.
Fill out and return the written application for admission along with the application fee, The G.P.S. official health form, a current P-VAC-3 vaccination form, and, in the case of candidates for first grade, a copy of one’s birth certificate will be needed if the applicant is admitted. The test will be given the following day the test application has been returned with the fee to the office.
If the applicant is a candidate for admission, a copy of the student’s transcripts must be provided for the current school year as well as for the previous year and a brief letter, note, or form from the principal or director of the student’s current school indicating the student’s record of behavior.
An interview with the principal of the division of the school to which the student is applying may be made only if the applicant is a candidate. An interview cannot take place if the student has not taken the admission test and if the parents have not submitted, or are not prepared to submit at the time of the interview, the student’s transcripts.
Once accepted a student cannot be considered enrolled until his parents pay the registration fee and return a copy of his admission letter signed by them and thereby acknowledging the conditions of his admission.
