About Our Universal Prekindergarten
The Mount Vernon City School District is proud to offer FULL Day Universal Prekindergarten to families in the Mount Vernon City School District.
The Mount Vernon Pre-Kindergarten Program offers a well-implemented, evidence-based curriculum taught by highly qualified Pre-K teachers and teaching assistants who are specially trained to utilize developmentally appropriate activities, implement standards-based instruction, and build a nurturing classroom environment for all young learners. Mount Vernon Pre-K provides regular assessments of a child’s learning that are built into the curriculum, so teachers will ensure a child is on track for success in kindergarten.
Children will engage in growth and educational experiences, such as field trips, activities about families, digital communications, computer coding and iPad usage. The robust curriculum includes reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Students will learn in whole groups and small groups and develop social and emotional skills.
Pre-K is currently available at the following locations: Mount Vernon High School, Parker School, Graham School, Pennington School, Holmes School, Williams School, Traphagen School, Mandela/Zollicoffer School and Columbus School.
The Mount Vernon City School District has a universal school uniform policy in effect for ALL students in grades K-8. Our school uniforms are maroon shirts with khaki colored pants or shorts for boys and khaki colored pants, dresses, skirts or shorts for girls.
