Thank you for your interest in Thomas Metcalf School. Under the direction of the Dean of the College of Education, Thomas Metcalf School continues the long tradition reflected in the four-part mission of the Illinois State University Laboratory Schools:
Since the University Laboratory Schools must provide a student subject pool for a number of research projects as part of its stated mission, it is important to create a diverse student population. In order to accomplish this, students will be admitted in accordance with the following guidelines:
|Preschool (age 4)||12-14 students per class|
|Kindergarten||16-20 students per class|
|Primary (1st-3rd grade)||18-22 students per class|
|Intermediate (4th-6th grade)||20-24 students per class|
|Middle School (7th-8th grade)||22-26 students per class|
We are disappointed that we will not be able to host an in-person Open House for parents of prospective students this year. In lieu of our regular experience, we will be hosting a Virtual Open House. We invite you to join us for a Live Question & Answer Forum on Tuesday, February 9th at 6pm. You are encouraged to check out our Prospective Student Informational Website prior to the Question & Answer Forum to help facilitate the live discussion, and return to that site on the 9th to access the Q&A link.
