Welcome. We are glad that you are considering sending your child to Polaris!
If you want a caring and stimulating school with great teachers and staff where your gifted child will learn, make friends, and grow, then this is the place for you.
Our school grade configuration will be new in the 2017-18 school year, so we have additional spots for new children at a variety of levels. Our new configuration is as follows:
Kindergarten: We are no longer offering kindergarten.
1st grade: 2 classes
2nd grade: 2 classes
3rd grade: 3 classes
4th grade: 3 classes
5th grade: 3 classes
In 2017-18 we will have 25 spots for new students in first grade, 28 spots in third grade and 21 spots in fourth grade. We will also have spots in second and fifth. We’d be thrilled if one of those was taken by your child!
