The early years of childhood are filled with wonder and exploration. We understand that children learn best by doing and strive to cultivate an environment where children are active participants, decision makers, collaborators, and problem solvers. Life in the Lower School is full of opportunities!
Our philosophy of active learning and project work is woven through all of our programs. Students are encouraged to try something new, to take a risk without fear of failure, to build new friendships, and to gain a solid foundation in the academic skills that are the building blocks for success in our global world. We believe all domains of development (social, emotional, physical, and cognitive) are intrinsically linked with academic achievement. Our strong relationships with students and their families facilitate communication, discussion, and safe exploration.
We urge you to come and visit so that you can experience firsthand the strength of our academic program, the warmth of our nurturing environment, the enthusiasm of our students and the dedication of our faculty.
