The Community School at Dondero
Dondero Elementary School
Portsmouth, NH (map)

The warm and inviting preschool classroom at Dondero Elementary School offers your child a truly unique learning opportunity in an engaging and stimulating environment. Our teachers are highly qualified early childhood professionals who work closely with the school departments' Special Educators, speech and language experts, and physical therapists. Classes accommodate children who have special needs along with typically developing children.

The curriculum follows key objectives as outlined by the Creative Curriculum® / Teaching Strategies Gold® system. Teachers regularly monitor and nurture your preschooler’s language, science, math, and social/emotional development. Teachers share the details of your child's day at pickup, and you will also be invited to schedule a parent/teacher conference twice a year to discuss her progress in detail.

The Community School follows the public school calendar. They are closed on all of the holidays, vacations, and inclement weather days observed by the school department.
