Lower School is considered to cover roughly ages 6 through 8 years, and the equivalent of First through Third Grade.
The first few years of formal education have the wonderful potential of expanding a child's natural thirst for learning. The Lower School curriculum provides a rich program that teaches basic skills and draws a young child out, keeping that thirst alive and growing.
For a detailed list of abilities that can be taught to children 2-1/2 to 7-1/2 years old, the Lower School Curriculum Descriptions book is recommended. It contains vital information which parents and teachers can use to work out educational activities and programs for any young child. Subject areas covered are reading, language skills, spelling, writing, mathematics, computers, manners, research, geography and history, foreign language, art, music, physical education, manual skills, projects and activities, visits and experiences, home and personal skills, and health.
