Our Motto is Just 4 - "Small but MIGHTY!
Our Vision is that All students will meet or exceed proficiency standards in reading, mathematics, and writing and be well prepared for the next level of education.
Just 4 will become a world-class pre-kindergarten model of Baldrige-based quality education for the state, district, and nation.
Educational delivery occurs in a full-day pre-kindergarten program during traditional school calendar. Just 4 teachers are certified by the Alabama State Department of Education in either Early Childhood education or Preschool Special education.
Just 4's professional staff is devoted to providing a high-quality, research-based, child-centered pre-kindergarten program which emphasizes early academics and social development. Goals are achieved through active learning, positive adult-child interactions, organized classrooms, developmentally appropriate materials, consistent daily routines, and ongoing daily assessments.
Just 4 utilizes resource teachers to enhance all children's access to health services, guidance and counseling, special education, music and movement, and language and literacy.
