Lower School

Our lower school students benefit from small group instruction alongside other gifted peers.

1st - 4th Grade

Students are thoughtfully placed into grade-level homerooms in which they participate in classes like art and drama together.  For language arts and math, students are grouped according to their educational needs.​

​Lower School students enjoy: math, language arts, science, social studies, art, drama, music and chorus, physical education, world language (French or Spanish), and technology. Read more about our curriculum »

Our approach fosters the development of critical thinking skills which are crucial to the growth of any child. We strive to help each child become an independent thinker who is capable of making decisions, substantiating statements made, and exploring new ideas to take risks. We want our students to respect each other, to be caring, compassionate and helpful.
