Private Elementary School


From kindergarten through 4th grade, our lower school empowers students to be independent thinkers and confident decision makers who are excited to learn.  Our stimulating, nurturing environment helps children grow cognitively, socially, physically and creatively.

We personalize the academic experience for our students and their families through Differentiated Instruction, small-group instruction, teaching to various learning modalities and intelligences, student-choice, and through our Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs).  We want our students to be able to:

  • Monitor their own learning and measure their own progress
  • Communicate well, both orally and in writing
  • Work collaboratively with peers to solve problems and innovate
  • Take intellectual risks
  • Think critically
  • Empathize
  • Self-advocate
  • Take responsibility for their choices
  • Use technology to create, communicate, and collaborate
  • Express themselves artistically

Our social/emotional curriculum helps create a structured, caring, respectful atmosphere.  Each classroom begins every day with Morning Meeting, designed to build a sense of community and belonging and collaboration in the classroom.  Teachers use brain-based pedagogy to maximize students’ collective potential while helping individual children achieve personal academic goals.

Our Lower School program also begins the journey of global awareness for our students, teaching them to think deeply and critically about the world around them and some of the difficult issues that humans and our planet face.  Beginning in 2nd grade, our Touchpoints program connects students to their peers in our sister schools around the world, giving them opportunities to collaboratively tackle complex challenges that we face as citizens and global neighbors.
