Enriching the Child: Grades 1 through 4
The Lower School, grades one through four, builds carefully on the Montessori framework, and collaborates closely with Montessori faculty to ensure a smooth, seamless transition. Students in grades one through four receive a more substantive introduction to computers, and to the core elements of The Summit's academic curriculum: language arts, math, foreign language, science, social studies, fine arts, physical education, and religion.
Our Lower School is enhanced by The Summit's state-of-the-art facility. Designed to provide a completely child-centered learning experience, the new building features large, roomy classrooms that allow for interaction and hands-on learning; science labs filled with the latest equipment; and a bright, spacious library. Faculty and teaching assistants are all state-certified; small class sizes guarantee that every student receives plenty of individualized attention.
