Test Preparation: Studies show that students perform their very best when they are well rested and have had a good breakfast. Please know that our residential staff will make accommodations to activities and events on nights prior to testing.
Mainstream Registration: Registration is currently open for next fall at Faribault Public Schools, the registration window will close on April 14th . If you are interested in enrolling your child, please contact Jody or Anne Grace.
