  4. Who will benefit from the school's program
  5. Who will not interfere with the attainment of the educational goals of the school or the education of other students

Kindergarten Entrance

To enroll in kindergarten, children must be five years old by December 2 of the year of enrollment. Students entering kindergarten must show proof of age (a birth certificate).
First graders who did not attend kindergarten or pre-first must also show proof of age. Parents are encouraged to consider delaying kindergarten enrollment until a child is five years old because older children are often more successful in kindergarten and first grade.
In addition, a child's first school experience is extremely important in the development of a strong self-concept as a student. School readiness is determined by many factors, including physical maturation, social skills, varied experiences, and the ability to cooperate and follow directions.
