Kindergarten Transition

Your child must be 5 years old on or before September 1.

The School District of Philadelphia does not test for early admission to kindergarten under any circumstances.

Any 6-year-old child who did NOT attend kindergarten may attend kindergarten instead of 1st grade, at the written request of the parent(s).
