General School Mission

"Our mission begins with our youngest students, where the habits of the mind and heart are established. We emphasize thinking clearly, creatively and critically; expressing oneself effectively; acting in a responsible manner; and becoming a lifelong learner.
Our Lower School fosters intellectual curiosity and a striving for excellence, a love of the arts, a commitment to active and healthy lives, and a dedication to improving the school, the community, and the world. In a challenging and supportive learning environment, dedicated teachers address the unique intellectual, social, physical, artistic and spiritual needs of each student. Faculty members employ a rich variety of teaching strategies, recognize and nurture individual gifts and strengths, and guide each child on an engaging and inspiring educational journey.
