In Lower School, children's curiosity and sense of wonder find momentum with our teachers’ passions for creating challenging experiences that meet them right where they are.
Children are active learners, and when they learn by doing, they begin to connect one idea to another—a process that continues as they build foundational skills for scholarship and develop into more abstract thinkers and problem solvers. As they pursue more information and deeper understanding, students build a steadily growing sense of themselves and the world around them. We have high ambitions for our students as they discover what it means to be an active member of a learning community and to contribute to their classroom, their school and eventually to the greater world.
