Proegler School is the home to Head Start. Intended primarily for preschoolers from low-income families. Head Start's mission is to promote school readiness to enable each child to develop to his or her fullest potential by providing a structured curriculum fully aligned with state and federal standards accompanied by frequent assessment and analysis. Head Start's comprehensiveness also includes a full array of support for families and children including health, dental, mental health, and nutrition services or referrals. Additionally, children receive developmental, vision, hearing, and dental screenings. Parents are encouraged to become involved in all aspects of the program, from participation in children's activities to direct involvement in policy and program decisions. In total, the program enrolls 400 children between the ages of three and five years of age. Ten percent of the enrollment is dedicated to children with disabilities.
