This is where it all begins! Children come to the Lower School with a natural curiosity and a desire to learn; it is our responsibility to keep those qualities alive and growing. We seek to help our children build a strong foundation of basic skills and a sense of confidence in themselves as learners. A challenging curriculum set in a warm and nurturing environment allows children to take intellectual risks and permits them to make mistakes. With support from caring and committed teachers, our students discover and develop their own unique talents and abilities. We encourage them to take to heart the motto of the Lower School: Be the Best of Whatever You Are.
Head of the Lower School
The Lower School provides a safe and supportive atmosphere which enables children to think, question, and create freely. Emphasizing the building-block skills of reading, writing, social studies, and math, the curriculum inspires children to be active, engaged learners. No matter what subject the children are exploring, teachers blend academic and personal growth in activities that foster a love of learning and strong self-esteem.
