Applicant Visit

Solicit Teacher Recommendations for Submission

If your child has attended a prior school or daycare, please have their previous teacher/s fill out an AISNE recommendation form.

All teacher recommendations may be requested through your Ravenna account. Parents may delegate a recommendation form by entering the teacher’s email address. The Ravenna system will then email the form and instructions, allowing teachers to submit online. If your child’s teacher prefers to complete the AISNE teacher recommendation form on paper, please download the appropriate AISNE form(s), give them to your child’s teachers, and have them mail the forms directly to our admission office at:

Lesley Ellis School
Attn.: Admission Department
34 Winter Street, Arlington, MA 02474

Request a Copy of the Last 2 Years of Progress Reports (if applicable) Be Sent to Lesley Ellis School

Print the records release form from the Ravenna system, sign the form, and give it to your child’s current school.
