A Maize USD 266 student colors a "Welcome to Kindergarten!" worksheet. UPDATE: The enrollment night has been canceled due to the school building closure and stay-home order. Please stay tuned for details about enrollment. Thank you.


If you have an incoming Pre-K or kindergarten student who will start school at Maize USD 266 in August 2020, please plan to attend our enrollment night, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. March 31 at Maize High School, 11600 W. 45th St. North in Maize.

For incoming Pre-K families: Maize USD 266 is excited to offer Pre-K to all children who live within the Maize School District.

Our Pre-K sessions are at our Maize Early Childhood Center on Monday through Thursday and use Pre-K reading and literacy curriculum, along with developmentally appropriate activities, and are taught by licensed teachers. If your child meets at least one of our state's at-risk criteria, there is no fee for the program other than the curriculum fee. If you would like your child to attend and he/she does not meet a criteria, a monthly fee applies.
