Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Lower School years are years of exploration and learning. Through hands-on experiences, children are afforded the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Children work in small groups and receive individual attention on a daily basis. For much of the day, the children are immersed in theme-based learning in which topics are integrated across subject areas. Because much of the curriculum is interdisciplinary, the classroom teachers plan their activities in consultation with the specialists to ensure continuity. Field trips and performances by artists, musicians, dance and theatre groups further enrich the Lower School program.
