Lower School (K – 4)

The Lower School years are full of energy and excitement as strong foundations are laid for life-long learning. Our Lower School curriculum is built upon proven brain-based and educational research, and we are consistently amazed by what our students can accomplish.

Small Class Sizes

Small classes averaging 16 – 18, allow each student to be known as a unique individual and enable our teachers to nurture each student’s academic, social, spiritual, and emotional needs.
