Along with completed application and pre-school evaluation/recommendation, there is a $60 screening fee. Fee may also apply for First grade applicants.

Upon submission of application, the school will schedule a developmental screening for school readiness in early March. The developmental screening helps educators and parents to know where a child is in relation to typical growth patterns. The child-friendly tasks are specifically designed to allow the child to feel successful within his or her developmental level.
