My daughter is attending the Preschool Program at David Skeets Elementary School. My expectation was minimal due to the fact that my daughter was only three years old and will be attending a rural public preschool. I enroll her in this program so she can attain social skills with her peers and maybe learn her numbers and alphabets. The preschool program did so much more and have exceeded my expectations. My daughter now knows how to count from one to thirty, the colors, the difference between upper case and lower case letters, phonics, punctuations, even learned how to spell and write her first and last name, and so much more. I have seen the progress my daughter has made which makes me feel grateful for the dedication the staff has shown. This preschool will make a difference in my child's academic future.
The school is a balanced literacy school, emphasizing literacy throughout all subjects. Students attend specials, such as PE, Art, and Library, during the week. The school follows a systems approach to school improvement at all levels.

After school programs are available for students. Teachers participate in weekly professional development workshops.
