Multiage Choice Program
The Valley Crossing Multiage Choice Program allows students to develop relationships with the same team of teachers and classmates over a two-year period.
Classrooms are grouped together as kindergarten and first grade, second and third grade and fourth and fifth grade. Instruction focuses on individual progress in both academic and social-emotional areas.
