Lower School (Pre-K/5)
Paramount to the Lower School experience are the relationships we build, and our focus on creating a culture of joyful engagement in which children love to learn. Lower School provides the strong academic foundation students need in order to reach their potential. Our pedagogy is rooted in teaching the basic skills required for reading, writing, and math, then building and solidifying these skills through innovative and creative learning opportunities. Our thoughtful and dynamic curriculum asks students to apply skills in challenging ways through project-based learning and design thinking. In addition to our rich academic curriculum, the Lower School program includes six co-curricular classes: Spanish, art, music, STEM, physical education, and library. Interdisciplinary teaching methods are used to reinforce learning goals across our curriculum. Equally important is the emphasis we place on the social and emotional growth of students, which is fostered through character development and service learning. Educating the whole child in an environment that is nurturing and supportive is our priority.
