Palms Middle School

Phone the office at your school. They will know better than complete strangers in far-away places.

Glen Said:

Where can you find a middle school in Burbank, and Surrounding areas?

We Answered:

Below is a good website with listings of the private schools in LA County. Also, you might consider Pasadena if it's not too out of the way for your parents, especially for high school, as they have many good private schools and it's about the same distance/time as Sherman Oaks. Some schools consider 6th the first middle school grade, others consider 7th.

If you're looking for Sept 2010, you have a problem as the admissions process is already going on and for most schools the applications were already due. You *might* be able to apply late, but usually the good schools won't take late applications because they'll already have far more applicants than spaces.

Middle school is not typically a good entrance grade for most K - 8s, there aren't usually any openings (just one or two if someone moves) and the schools are hesitant to accept new kids who aren't used to their curriculum, and so close to the high school admissions process. 7 - 12s will have more openings in 7th usually none to 2 in 8th, just if a student moves away, K - 12s will have openings in 6th or 7th, depending on when middle school starts.

9th grade is a good entrance point as there are more spaces in high schools, better opportunities for financial aid ($10,000+ Catholic, 25,000+ non-religious private school tuition is typical), the schools are more willing to take students from public schools, you can do more through middle school to fill out your resume (community service, leadership, sports, awards, gpa, etc) to have a chance at being admitted because typically there are 3 - 10 applications per open space, time to study for the entrance exams, get good recommendations from your teachers, etc.
