Registration Information

Dear Parents:

Please see registration procedures and required documentation below:

Registrations for the 2017-18 school year will be accepted at the office starting on February 1, 2018.  Completed Registration forms will need to be returned to the school office. We do not have online registration at this time. Registration forms must be complete and accompanied by a copy of a recent report card and a copy of a birth certificate, proof of address which includes:  1) legal documentation eg: mortgage document/rental or lease agreement, property tax statement; and 2) bill eg:  BC Hydro, cell, Telus, bank statement or credit card statement.  The office will not make copies of these documents for you.

January and February is the time of year when parents begin to look for a Middle School for their Grade 5 student. If you are interested in registering your child at ATMS, please read below:

  • Students from our three Feeder schools will be receiving a Registration Package at their school. These need to be returned to ATMS by February 1st in order to reserve your spot at ATMS for Grade 6.
  • ATMS has a capped enrollment of 450 students. There are 150 students in each grade - 6, 7 and 8.
  • The majority of our Grade 6 students come from our three feeder Elementary schools, King, South Poplar and Auguston. The remainder of our Grade 6 students come from schools through out Abbotsford and even eastern Aldergrove and Mission. We also occasionally have openings for Grades 7 and 8.
  • Registration Deadlines:
    •  Feeder Elementary Schools - March 1
    • "New to Traditional" Siblings  - February 15
    • Open Registration for all other students - No deadline
  • New student admission interviews will be conducted some time after Spring Break. Registrations for students will continue to be accepted. Please do not call our office to inquire after your registration status, we will call you when we have a seat for you.
  • All "New to Traditional" students who register at ATMS in spring are put on waitlists. We have a "sibling" waitlist and a "non-sibling" waitlist.
  • The rules regarding what qualifies as a "sibling" has changed. Students who are wanting to attend ATMS and already have a brother or sister in ATMS are considered "Siblings" and are put on a priority waitlist. Students who do NOT have a sibling at ATMS have "non-sibling" status and are called when we have exhausted the "sibling" list.

The "Feeder Schools" package is for students in Grade 5 and currently attending either King Traditional, South Poplar Traditional or Auguston Traditional. These students have already received these packages at their schools, however we are providing a copy here in the event that it is needed. Please return all Traditional Feeder Registration forms to either your school office or the the ATMS office by February 2 to reserve your spot.

The "New Traditional Student" package is for students who are either Siblings or Non-Siblings and NOT coming from a Traditional Elementary school and going into Grade 6 and for students who are registering for Grade 7 or 8. Please print off the package. Read the introductory letter and fill in the required paper work. Bring it to the ATMS Office with a copy of a recent report card and a copy of a birth certificate. You will be put on a wait list on a first come-first served basis by grade.
