Unique Programs

  • Some of the programs we have at Fern Drive Elementary are:

    Transitional Kindergarten Program

    *The transitional kindergarten program uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for younger children. Transitional kindergarten provides a bridge between preschool and kindergarten and is intended to help students with fall birthdays become more successful in their future years of schooling.

    Visual Innovation Program – Tk-Sixth Grade

    We are so fortunate in Fullerton School District to offer this 1:1 iPad program to students in Tk-6th grade District wide.

    The focus of the iPad program at The Fullerton School District is to provide tools and resources for the 21st Century Learner. Excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. The individual use of iPads is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for high school, college and future careers.  Learning results from the continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended community. Effective teaching and learning with iPads integrates technology into the curriculum anytime, anyplace.

    PE Program
