  •  Early Learning  

    SUSD offers tuition-based programs for Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K). Throughout our preschool and Pre-K programs, certified and licensed teachers provide developmentally appropriate curriculum tailored to each child, ultimately preparing them for Kindergarten. 

  •  Enrichment Zone

    Registration for Fall 2022 is now open. Click here for the description of classes and schedule for each participating school. 

    Enrichment Zone provides students with creative opportunities for after the school day enrichment classes that create a desire to learn. Classes are offered throughout the year and provided from several local vendors. Our classes allow students to explore activities that interest them outside of the regular school day. Along with the catalog information above, information on upcoming programs will also be provided through Peachjar.
