Kindergarten and Young 5s (K-Knights) Programs are Available at All Elementary Schools
K-Knights (also known as Young 5s) is a tuition-free program designed to teach skills that students need to start kindergarten and is open (but not limited) to children whose 5th birthday falls between June and September 1st. It may also be a good fit for those children who have no preschool experience. Your child will experience a fun, creative, encouraging, child-centered environment while learning to work both independently and collaboratively. Kindergarten skills and behavior are emphasized while students are given the support they need to find success at their level of learning and development. To see if this program would be a good fit for your child, please attend one of the events above at your home school.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
