Lower School

Foundations are built in Lower School. The flexible learning environment is one of self-contained homerooms led by teachers who empower students to develop responsibility and intellectual curiosity.

From the time our youngsters are greeted at the door by their teacher in the morning until dismissal, lower school students are actively engaged in independent and collaborative learning. Homeroom teachers guide children through their day while specialists in art, music, technology, physical education, Spanish and Christian education enhance the core disciplines. The development of decision-making and social skills is fostered in an affirming atmosphere. Lower School challenges each student to gain confidence, take intellectual risks, and master necessary skills for Middle School.
