Kindergarten Registration Information

  • The Board of Education has adopted revised board policy indicating a change to the Kindergarten birthday cut off date.   Effective beginning the 2017-2018 school year, the new policy states that "A child is eligible for entrance into kindergarten if s/he attains the age of five (5) on or before August 1st of the year in which s/he applies for entrance." 
    (If you do not have access to a computer, computers will be available at the Brunswick Board of Education.)
    Kindergarten registration cannot proceed unless the registration application is submitted electronically, an appointment is scheduled, and all original documents are produced at the time of the registration appointment. Only a custodial parent/legal guardian can officially enroll a student.  Therefore, the custodial parent/legal guardian must be the individual present at the registration appointment.
    To begin the Kindergarten Registration Process, please follow the steps below:

Early Entrance Testing for Kindergarten

  • Testing for Early Entrance to Brunswick City School District will take place in April or May. Only children who are both academically talented and of superior ability are admitted for Early Entrance. The placement criteria are set at a high level of difficulty so that the under-aged child will not be disadvantaged by his or her age difference. Children will have an individual evaluation by a school psychologist to determine whether they meet all of the following criteria: intelligence within the very superior range of ability as measured by a standardized intelligence test (i.e., children whose intelligence falls within the gifted range); visual motor maturity at a 6-year-old level (i.e., children whose paper/pencil skills equal a first-grade child); superior reading and math skill development; evidence of superior social/emotional adjustment as observed by the school psychologist.
    Parents who feel their child may meet all of the above criteria need to write a letter which includes the following information:
    Child's name
    Birthdate; Address
    Phone Number(s)
    Name of parents or guardians
    Elementary school child would attend
    Describe why you feel your child meets the early entrance requirements
