Lower School, Grades K-4Download E-book for Prospective Parents

In our lower school, we stress building a solid foundation. 

Our SRA Open Court Reading program is phonetically based, allowing children with different learning styles to succeed. Along with phonics, there is a strong emphasis on comprehension skills.

Our traditional math program, Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley Mathematics, incorporates the use of manipulatives, strategies, and problem-solving techniques. This program has the added benefit of being accessible online. Students are taught multiple strategies for problem solving, allowing each student to choose the strategy that works best for him or her.

The Language Arts program emphasizes grammar through creative writing, spelling, book talks, journals, and pen pal communications. In Social Studies, students are exposed to a variety of skills, concepts, and history.
