A Love For Knowledge

We recognize that the lower school years lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning, and as such, we strive to instill a love for knowledge and a passion for discovery in each and every student. Our approach is built to nurture both academic excellence and the social-emotional growth and well-being of our students.

Students learn in small group settings, where every student is encouraged from a young age to recognize their needs so that they can confidently advocate for themselves. This equips them with boundless confidence that radiates beyond the classroom.

As students progress to the upper grades of the Lower School, they receive tailored support that broadens their academic independence while further developing their organizational and study skills.
