***Note about Class Descriptions***

The grade ranges for students are meant to be a guideline, so in the beginning as we start-up, students that are slightly younger or older can join a smaller first class then as numbers grow and developmental needs become apparent we can split a bigger group with a wide grade range into two classes with smaller grade ranges. 


Afterwards the grade ranges are still meant as a guideline, so students who feel more comfortable by enrolling  in a class that is outside of their grade range may request so and is permissible pending approval.
