Hammer Montessori Enrollment

Families interested in enrolling at Hammer Montessori Magnet Elementary for the 2018-19 school year are required to have toured the school prior to starting the enrollment process. 
Hammer Montessori school tours take place January through March and provide you an opportunity to see a Montessori classroom in action.  Tour dates are to be determined.  Please call the office beginning in December 2017 to reserve a date for one of our tours.

SJUSD Enrollment Process
As a San Jose Unified School District Magnet school, placement at Hammer Montessori is determined by a lottery.  The lottery process is managed by the District Enrollment Centers at 1-408-535-6412.  Call ahead to book an appointment.  For a full list of enrollment requirements, please visit the SJUSD Website. 
If you currently have a student enrolled and they have younger siblings joining us next year, you do not need to attend a tour.  However, you will have to go through the registration process at one of the San Jose Unified Enrollment Centers. Siblings of current students do not have to win the lottery to be enrolled because they receive priority placement but they must have registered at the enrollment center prior.  If you do not enroll prior to the lottery, you risk being on the wait list. 
Please note: The only exception to that rule is if you have a current 5th grader, and children starting Kindergarten in the 18-19 school year.  You’re back to having to win the lottery.
