About our programs:
All of our classrooms implement district curriculum in the areas of language arts, mathematics and science.   Students are assessed using a cycle of observation and curriculum adjustment.  Four year old students are assessed in the area of early literacy district-wide.
Student progress is reported to parents three times a year and conferences are offered in the Fall and Spring.
