Lower School

lowerschool

In Lower School, we emphasize exploration and discovery to help cultivate the curiosity and wonder that every child is born with. Students are encouraged to explore the natural world through science experiments, stories, and numbers, and build the skills of a life-long learner through penmanship, phonics, reading, and grammar.

To help encourage lively minds, healthy habits, and knowledgeable connection to the world around them, our students participate in active and outdoor (weather permitting) play throughout their day in our 4 acres of fully fenced green space.
