Gifted Preschool Classroom Visits
Prospective parents may visit our gifted preschool classes on the scheduled day of each week during morning center time. Because the teachers are busy working with students, they will not be available to answer questions at this time. If you have questions regarding the class / program, you can contact the teachers via email, and they will be happy to respond when they are not with students.
Please sign in at the front office, and an office member will escort you to the room. We look forward to sharing the amazing learning activities that take place in our gifted preschools!
You may also attend a scheduled tour of the schools. Please check with the schools’ websites or office staff for specific dates and times.
