Is my child's school a tax exempt organization?

My son attends Center Woods Elementary School for morning preschool, which charges $150.00 a month for tuition. I am putting this in deductions and credits -- childcare expenses. Is this public school a tax-exempt organization?

Probably not, but you would have to ask them to be sure.  Section 501 tax exempt status does not apply to state, county or municipal governmental unit except in certain circumstances.  A state or municipal instrumentality may qualify under section 501(c)(3) if it is organized as a separate entity from the governmental unit that created it and if it otherwise meets the organizational and operational tests of section 501(c)(3).
