Our young students are active, engaged thinkers with a powerful sense of their own abilities and a growing respect for the talents each person brings to the community. In our Lower School classrooms we provide a high level of intellectual challenge within a program designed to guide and inspire children as they discover the full extent of their abilities. Using a developmentally appropriate approach, our teachers give children in the Lower School time to grow, explore, and discover.
Through hands-on, interdisciplinary work our Lower School students participate actively in projects that teach them to conduct research, calculate, experiment, and solve problems. We help children develop their minds, hearts, and bodies through physical education. We believe in the timeless and vital experience of free play, knowing it helps young children build sensitivity and respect, and learn to live peacefully and joyfully.
