To create learning that lasts, our talented Lower School faculty has carefully chosen and connected curricula that increase in complexity while reinforcing previous learning. Teachers are adept at challenging and supporting each child to maximize individual growth and achievement. Your child will gain an exceptional foundation for the academic and leadership opportunities of our Middle School.
Lower School students spend approximately two-thirds of their day in a homeroom-based program. At the core of this program is the Responsive Classroom curriculum, which emphasizes social, emotional, and academic growth in a strong and safe community. In homeroom classes, students have assigned responsibilities and build relationships with one another and their homeroom teacher. Homeroom teachers also instruct students in math, language arts, and social studies. Students leave their homeroom for science, Spanish, performing and visual art, physical education, and religion classes, which are taught by departmental faculty. Chapel services are held weekly.
