Highly competant, dedicated teachers deliver an integrated curriculum that fosters creativity, teamwork, and independence. Daily routines include reading, writing, phonics, spelling, mathematics, science, social studies, life skills, and character development. Students also participate in enrichment opportunities including music, art, drama, Spanish, dance, chorus, band, strings, Science Lab, physical education, and Knowledge Center. 

Lower School facilities have been designed with children in mind, providing a safe environment while maintaining an open and inviting feel. From our dedicated playground to our own library specializing in materials for younger minds, our investment in the educational environment surrounding our students is clear.
