Our Approach to Elementary Teaching and Learning at Windermere Prep

Our elementary school, known as “Lower School” at Windermere Prep, is centered around building confidence, creativity, and the love of learning in every child. We encourage their natural curiosity by asking meaningful questions and discovering answers. Our students strengthen their critical thinking skills and develop a love of learning that they carry with them throughout their lives.

Lower School facilities have been designed to provide 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 that surrounds our students is clear.

Our Lower School is a vibrant elementary educational community that promotes growth, encourages learning and exploration, and encourages students to partake in all that WPS offers.
