General School Mission

"HEAD START - Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program for economically disadvantaged preschool children and their families. The objectives of this program are: (1) to improve the child's health; (2) aid the child's intellectual, social, and emotional development; (3) improve and expand the child's ability for self-expression; and (4) help both the enrollees and their families gain greater confidence, self-respect, and dignity. Eligibility guidelines require that enrollees, including children with disabilities, are between three years of age and compulsory school attendance, and at least ninety percent are from low-income families."
