Elementary Schools

Every year, children are monitored to see if they will reach the age of 6 by April 1st of the following year. If so, a letter of school enrollment is sent to the guardians in mid-October so that their children can enroll in school in the following semester. Please have your child go to the designated school as notified to get a health checkup before enrollment. If your child does not receive this letter, please contact the Sanjo Board of Education.
