Lower School

 

Overview

The Lower School (grades K-5) offers a curriculum that is relevant to the abilities and developmental needs of students at each grade level.  Our goals are to foster inquisitiveness, independence, and an appreciation of learning; to promote self-direction; and to support cooperation and concern for others.  Students grow from the challenge of new and progressively more difficult material within a structured and supportive school environment.  The Lower School curriculum emphasizes the building of a strong foundation in the areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  The academic curriculum is extended and enriched by specialist teachers who provide programs in Music, Spanish, and Physical Education.  Technology is incorporated into the curriculum through the use of our 20-computer Apple Lab.
