See School Differently

Kindergarten is an exciting (and nerve-racking!) time of learning and growth for your entire family, and the Intergenerational Schools are here to help!

Our schools have small, multi-age classes that allow children to learn and teach alongside peers, teachers and community volunteers of all ages who serve as learning partners. Kindergarteners specifically learn alongside first and second grade students in our Emerging and Beginning classes.

Proof of Residency requirements

For both new and re-enrolling families, your enrollment is NOT complete until you've submitted a proof of residency. 

This document must include your name, address and date (within the past 90 days).

As defined by law (ORC 3314.11), a proof of residence must be one of the following:

  • a mortgage or lease
  • gas bill
  • electric bill
  • water bill
  • sewer bill
  • bank statement
  • home telephone bill (not cell phone)
  • paycheck or paystub that includes guardian’s address
  • property tax bill
  • deed
  • home owner’s or renter’s insurance declaration page
  • If you and your student(s) are currently not residing in a home that you own or rent (such as temporary residence with a friend or family member), you may provide a notarized affidavit from the owner or renter of the property that states you are residing with them along with a proof of residence with that individual’s name on it.

What Our Families Say

“Each child is different. My oldest loves the ability to engage in intense discussions in her small class where everyone is able to express their opinions. My youngest likes writing workshop. My middle child enjoys yoga and IG visits.”

“Anytime I call or email a teacher or staff at their school, I am always greeted with respect and I they solve the problem (if any) right away.”

“The staff is patient with the children. They get to know them as individuals which in turn helps them figure out how to teach them and understand their learning styles. My daughter is confident and comfortable when learning and it shows through in her work.”

“My daughter comes home telling me something new that she learned every day. She does not breeze through her work because it is too easy. She is regularly bringing home new work that blends the things she has already learned with new lessons that help the transition go smoother.”

“I think my child has benefited in numerous ways from the different cultures of kids who attend, the field trips, and the unique way of teaching.”

“I love this school, small teacher, student ratio. My son has behavior issues and the school has done so much to help us with this.”
