We even offer Jump Start to Kindergarten. Our outstanding Pre K Initiative provides us the access to be able to identify students who have not had a preschool experience that could use a Jump Start to Kindergarten. We have two small classes of students - learning how to play school, before school begins!

This is the 6th year that West Valley School District has operated the Jump Start Summer School. During the school year students are assessed fall, winter, and spring on Reading and Mathematics. If their scores fall below grade level, we offer this opportunity in the summer to provide the extra time needed to address any learning gaps and get them up to speed before the new school year begins!
