    Rising K students for 2020/2021
    Each spring, MES holds a “Dolphin Splash” event where incoming K students are invited for a sneak peek at the school with their parents. This is a great time to learn about cirriculum, meet administrators and teachers, and get a feel for our school community. We will update this page with a date for the 2020/2021 Dolphin Splash as soon as it’s scheduled.

    For details about registration and the required documents which you will need to complete registration click here. 2020/2021 Registration dates and details will be released by APS in Spring of 2020.  We will update dates when we receive them. 

    Please bring copies of all required documents with you to register. It is imperative that you work with us and submit all required documents when you come to register. Proper submission of the required documents allows us to submit accurate enrollment numbers to Atlanta Public Schools, which helps us to properly staff our school as accurately as possible.
