Children who are eligible must be five years of age by August 31 of the current school year. If a child turns five between September and December 31 of the current school year, the child is eligible to apply for early kindergarten entrance testing.

Testing will be done in a group/classroom setting with six to nine children being tested at a time. Testing will include academic, social, and motor skills. Testing will last approximately one hour. Parents/guardians must stay on site until the testing is complete. We will not permit parents/guardians in the testing classroom.
