Lower School (Kindergarten-6th Grade)

In the foundational formative years, our Lower School program focuses on building a strong core while cultivating the joy of learning.

Our lower level program is unique because it includes our 6th graders.  Students learn by leading, and our 6th graders purposefully lead our lower level students while also  preparing for the transition to the responsibility and difficulty of their 7th and 8th grade classes. 

Our K-5 classrooms engage students in mixed grade classes so that students can move easily to and from upper and lower level reading and math groups that fit their ability without having to be pulled out of their classroom. Teams of lead teachers and teacher assistants operate in concert in elementary classrooms 5 days per week so that our student-teacher ratio remains low.

Teachers are keenly aware of the needs of each student and have close relationships with parents to provide the foundation and structure that young students need to thrive and be ready for our upper level program.
