Registration for Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year is now underway at all 10 MVSD elementary schools.
If your child, or a child you know, will be five years old on or before September 1, 2017, MVSD invites you to register your child in its outstanding full day kindergarten program. Kindergartners in Mountain View attend a full school day, providing the opportunity for additional quality instructional time in the areas of literacy, science, social studies, fine arts, visual arts, oral language development, mathematics, writing and physical education. The full day program allows students to build stronger academic and social skills, resulting in them being better prepared to meet the rigorous grade level content and performance standards.
Children turning five years old between September 2, 2017 and March 2, 2018 are invited to enroll in the District’s Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program. TK is a bridge between preschool and kindergarten and gives young learners a head start and provides them with an opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that is tailored to meet their academic and social needs. MVSD’s TK Program uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate for young learners. It is designed to build a solid foundation for success in school for “young” 5 year olds and provides children with an enriched foundational early childhood education experience to prepare them for success in the more structured academic setting of traditional kindergarten. TK cultivates in students an overall readiness and enthusiasm for learning.
Mountain View School District is proud to have highly qualified teachers, a school-wide uniform policy, exceptional early literacy programs, extensive technology learning programs, clean, safe and secure schools, a free breakfast and lunch program, free bus transportation for those beyond walking distance from their school, and excellent after school care and instructional support offered through the THINK Together program.
