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.

Districtwide transportation provided to students who live within the district boundaries and more than one mile from the school.

About the Program

  • Each classroom has a mix of ages and abilities.
  • The intentional placement of students of different ages and abilities takes advantage of the natural diversity created.
  • Students stay with the same teacher for two years (grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5).
  • Teachers focus on continuous progress.
  • Multiage allows teachers to differentiate and personalize learning for students.
