A system of schools.
Dartmoor believes students benefit from access to a system of schools, and Dartmoor views itself as a special purpose school providing an alternative setting within this system. Dartmoor enjoys collaborating with local, national, and international schools in the education of its students. To discuss a potential enrollment, please contact Admissions at (425) 885-6296 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: to discuss a specific student's enrollment Dartmoor will need a signed release on file from the family. The release can be faxed to (425) 885-1137.
Many of Dartmoor's students dual enroll and therefore clear and open communication between the schools is imperative. With the family's permission, Dartmoor contacts the other school and discusses the student's academic history and enrollment. Collaborative services include:
- Sharing academic records and pertinent history
- Discussing and verifying course selection
- Corresponding (as needed)
- Sending progress and exit reports (if requested by family)
- Suggesting instructional strategies, accommodations, and modifications
- Making recommendations for further study
- Furnishing a transcript for credit courses
