Lower SchoolLearning in the Lower School should and does reflect the developmental levels of our students.  We allow students to be guided by teachers and to learn through discovery.  We want students to make meaningful connections to what they learn, to learn to articulate opinions with respect, to collaborate with their peers in problem solving, sometimes leading and sometimes being led.  In our early grades, there is a focus on literacy and a love of learning, with an understanding that children learn at different paces and in different ways. Teachers provide clear and regular communication with parents to maintain this critical partnership, setting the foundation for the future success of our students: ensuring their life at school is filled with challenges, and growth within a warm and supportive community.
