Early Entrance to Kindergarten 

Forest Lake Area Schools offers an early kindergarten entrance option for children who will turn five years old after September 1 and on or before September 30 and exhibit advanced social/emotional, intellectual, academic, and language skills. Parents who desire to have their child considered for early entrance to kindergarten may apply to have their child screened. During a typical year, our district has one or two students who qualify for early entrance.
