Lower School

100Years.jpg

Our lower school students in kindergarten through fifth grade experience an educational environment that focuses on their social, emotional and academic needs and recognizes their individual learning styles.  Our classrooms feature two experienced educators (a lead teacher and a faculty assistant) who use a multitude of teaching methods, extensive classroom materials and technology to support students as they go about their work.

Extracurricular activities and clubs are offered before and after school.  Many of our students play on athletic teams sponsored by our Parents Association Sports Council.

The character education program supports and promotes the school’s motto:  Freedom With Responsibility.  Our goal is to develop in our students informed consciences that help them choose responsible behavior.  In our program, we incorporate the core values of respect, responsibility, honesty and empathy.

Our definition of responsibility is meeting one’s own needs without interfering with the rights of others to meet their needs.  Character education becomes a part of our students’ daily experience.

Our students learn about the importance of serving their community by participating in classroom projects that benefit social service organizations.  They attend a variety of assemblies that feature impressive visitors to campus including award-winning authors and nationally renowned dancers and composers.  Additional programs celebrate our school’s diverse culture and the talents and accomplishments of our students.

Our goal is to develop in our students informed consciences that help them choose responsible behavior. In our program, we incorporate the core values of respect, responsibility, honesty and empathy.
