Solid curriculum

Our kindergarten learning activities are research-based. Our classrooms are nurturing, multi-sensory environments that support learning. Teachers provide instruction in phonics, reading, writing, social studies, math, science, and communication. Through differentiated instruction, teachers provide academic experiences for a wide variety of student learning needs.

Kindergarten Curriculum Handbook

Highly Qualified Staff

We have an award-winning kindergarten staff. Many of our kindergarten teachers have a master's degree or beyond. All MPS teachers participate in continuing education and professional development.

Parent Involvement

We value parent participation through United for Success, our volunteer program. Visit the United for Success website for more information.

Auxiliary Subjects
