Lower School: Challenging Every Child in Grades 1 through 4

Highly trained faculty, small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and data-driven instruction in our Lower School maximize each child's potential to learn. Our signature programs, like Five Star Reading and Conceptual Math, deliver high-impact results. The average fourth grader is reading at a sixth grade, four-month level by the time they move on to the Middle School.

In a culture of extraordinary care, classroom teachers and educational specialists are attuned to the individual child's academic and social-emotional needs.

We develop children academically as well as spiritually, physically, socially and artistically. Our leadership curriculum emphasizes personal accountability, empathy and action for others. Children focus on caring, respect, fairness and responsibility. 

The curriculum includes a formal introduction to computers and coding, World Language at every grade level and hands-on learning in state-of-the-art science labs and outdoor learning spaces. A spacious library has multiple reading collections.
