The Lower School is a warm nurturing environment of small classes and experienced dedicated teachers. The small structured classes allow individualized instruction for students who are either not achieving their potential within a traditional setting or who need additional challenge in their area of strength. Academics incorporate a multi-sensory, “hands on” approach where many fun activities are woven into the instructional mastery process. The goal of Lower School is for students to master basic academic and social skills that will be the foundation for all future learning. A major focus is to convey a love of reading that will inspire them to read about subjects of interest to them and for building knowledge required to succeed academically. Equally important, we work on how to make friends and learn appropriate social interactions that are critical life skills.
