Welcome to kindergarten at Hopkins Public Schools! We encourage young learners to pursue their interests, find their purpose, and discover their talents.
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your child. In Hopkins, we believe in relationships. Our scholars are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work — that's why love is one of our core values.
We are excited to partner with you and your upcoming kindergartner. We host several year-before-kindergarten events designed to help you get to know your school community and learn more about our kindergarten program, which is centered in your child's academic, social, and emotional success. Learn more about these events below. Be a part of our student-centered school community.
