Schedule a Parent/Guardian Visit
So that you may best experience the Stanley British Primary School program and philosophy, we provide small group tours. Tours of the campus and classrooms are generally conducted Mondays through Thursdays, from September to early January. Please call the Admission Office at 303-261-1792, or email the Admission Team, and we’d be delighted to schedule your tour. Because tours are part of the application process we encourage both parents/guardians to attend. Tours are not required for current families.

Conduct a Student Visitation
Required student visits take place in December and January and are scheduled after parents/guardians have made the initial visit and Stanley has received your completed application packet. After receiving your application, the Admission Office will contact you in December or January to schedule a date and time for your child to visit the school.
Visitation Activities by Grade
Students applying for grades 2 through 7 should bring the following things to the visit:
1. A collection of work consisting of three items from different classroom subjects that represent work that the student is proud of. These materials will be used as the foundation for student-teacher conversation.
2. A book that the applicant is currently reading.
3. A mid-morning snack to ensure that your child is comfortable during the visit.
If, after the visit, Stanley needs additional information or testing is required for us to determine if the school is an appropriate match for the applicant, we will contact you.
Following your child’s visit, we will contact you to schedule a short conference with a member of our Admission Team, which will last approximately 20 minutes. The purpose of this meeting is for us to get to know your family better and to answer any final questions in regards to your child’s application.
