The Lower School
Lower School News & Information
The Lower School program provides a quality education for students in pre-k through fourth grade. At the heart of the School’s philosophy and mission is a commitment to excellence in the academic, personal, and social development of the students. Lower School faculty and staff work closely together to create a nurturing environment with small classes and a challenging, comprehensive curriculum. With a solid foundation in traditional academic disciplines, the students develop and master skills and discover the joy of learning. Each class is taught by a homeroom teacher, and students receive additional support from an assistant.
The core curriculum is enhanced by the study of music, art, science, physical education, technology, library science, and foreign language (Spanish). Specialists in each area work closely with the homeroom teachers to create a rich and motivating program. Curriculum integration across subject disciplines strengthens the students’ knowledge and applications for learning.
