  • A child must be 5 years of age on or before September 1st to enter kindergarten and 6 years of age on or before September 1st to enter first grade.

    If your child will not be 5 or 6 years old on or before September 1st, and you wish to pursue enrollment, please review the requirements in policy JEBA and JEBA-AR. Psychological testing is necessary to determine readiness of a student younger than the required age. The tests are to be scheduled and paid for by the parent.
