Kindergarten at Mastery

Kindergarten at Mastery is fun! You can feel the joy in our classrooms and see the excitement on our students’ faces as they learn academic skills, like reading and subtraction, as well as life skills, like problem-solving and critical thinking.


Our teachers are loving. They nurture the greatness within each child and provide the personalized attention they need to thrive.


Everything we do reinforces our five core values: respect, responsibility, hard work, teamwork and kindness.


Kindergarten at Mastery is just the starting point. We proudly offer academic excellence from crayons to cap and gown!

Academic Excellence

We believe a strong start is the key! A solid foundation for math, reading and writing prepares students for success from kindergarten through high school graduation and beyond.

Joyful classrooms

Fun morning meetings get students excited and ready to learn. Providing field trips, recess, art, music, PE and other enrichment activities supports student growth. Each of our elementary schools offers Play in K, which helps students learn social-emotional skills like self-awareness, empathy and conflict resolution.
