When we were looking for elementary/middle schools I had a friend working at the school. I sometimes tried to get her to tell me about the other families applying to our child’s grade, but she was good about staying mum. She did say one year that she didn’t think a certain student would get in based on one of the parents’ attitudes. I only brought it up because my child mentioned a “weird” kid who visited. Weird in that he was rude and didn’t get along with his shadow guide.
So, to make a short story long — yes, I’m quite certain parents can be a deciding factor in whether a student is admitted or not.
