Information about our Kindergarten Program

Dennison Elementary School was established in 1974 to provide an alternative, choice education environment for students within Jefferson County where fundamental learning skills, academic rigor, and high expectations prepare students to be successful in today's society.

The following are highlights of the Dennison program: 
- Instruction occurs largely in self-contained classrooms with whole group, teacher directed instruction.

- Students are not grouped based on ability. - Reading instruction is based on the following components: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, reading fluency, and comprehension. - Basic skills are emphasized and textbooks are the basis for sequential instruction.   - Students are taught to proofread their work beginning in kindergarten. - Homework is purposeful and relevant to the subject. - Appropriate behavior is expected of students at all times. - Our Kindergarten program is not play-based.
