The Brookhaven School District is excited to announce a decrease in tuition cost and the expansion of our preschool program located at Mamie Martin Elementary School. The preschool is open to all three and four year olds regardless of their school district residency.
This tuition change and expansion are to encourage participation and to improve access for the entire community. Beginning in August 2016, Mamie Martin's preschool tuition will be $200 per month with a one-time $50 registration fee. The current tuition is $300 per month. Our goal is to grow from 37 three year old students to 120 students. We will be able to accommodate up to 20 three year old children and 100 four year old children.
The most exciting changes will occur within our four year old program. We will have up to five classes. Each class will have a certified teacher as well as a teacher's assistant. The preschool will build on a strong phonics and reading comprehension program. Our goal is to maximize our students' potential and obtain the highest level possible on the 3rd grade gateway reading test and other state tests these children will face in their future. With these changes, we expect to see academic growth that will improve performance and our overall district rating. We encourage all parents of three and four year olds in our community to explore this newly structured Brookhaven School District preschool program. Registration is now open.
