Prek and Kindergarten Information
Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten at West Elementary
Open Enrollment Week - February 10-14
West Elementary Families,
Welcome to Jenks West Elementary pre-kindergarten and kindergarten! We look forward to having your child join us as they build foundational skills as lifelong learners. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme School (PYP), our school day embraces the development of the whole child. Our teachers instruct students in literacy, mathematical concepts, discovery and inquiry of the natural world in science and social studies. Beyond academics, we develop and nurture social skills. Learning through play both inside the classroom and outdoors is an integral part of our lesson planning. We promote purposeful play across the curriculum while students learn and grow in all content areas.
