Finding success in learning is essential. The kindergarten curriculum is individualized to serve the needs of our students. Response to Intervention, a researched-based, data-driven method of assessment, allows the teachers to direct instruction towards the levels and needs of all students.

Our small class size has a desirable student to teacher ratio. Each of our three kindergarten classrooms has both a highly-qualified teacher and a full-time aide.

Kindergarten students have art in their homerooms and travel to music, physical education, library, and technology classes. Field trips and guest speakers expose the children to different topics and experiences.

We offer both half-day and full-day kindergarten options. Half-day begins at the regular time (7:45) and dismisses at 11:00 daily. Transitional options (half-day to full-day) are also available to half-day students.
