Welcome to FUSD!

  • Kindergarten sets the foundation for all learning in Florence Unified School District.   

    All of FUSD’s elementary school campuses offer FREE all-day kindergarten.

    Florence's kindergarten programs are designed to improve students' development in several ways, including:
    • social skills (how to play with other children in a calm, sharing, rewarding manner);
    • self-awareness and respect for others;
    • emotional skills (understanding others' feelings); 
    • language, literacy, and numeracy skills, including reading and counting;
    • a joy for learning, communicating and collaborating;
    • ability to make new friends; and
    • exposure to new ideas and concepts.

    FUSD schools help kindergarten students grow into academic enrichment programs. Accelerated gifted and talented models are offered at each campus.
