The purpose of our lower school curriculum is to provide a positive and exciting environment of exploration and discovery, establishing the foundation for growth both academically and personally.  From three-year-old kindergarten until fifth grade, students receive the building blocks for a solid academic base.  The aim of the curriculum is to instill a natural curiosity and a love of learning, the habit of daily individual study, a sense of responsibility for one's own work, and the central academic skills.  Students receive daily instruction in language arts, reading/literature, mathematics, science, and history/social studies. In addition, students participate in enrichment classes:  physical education, computer skills, spanish, and the fine arts classes of art, music, and band.  The curriculum encourages an ability to manipulate, apply, and integrate knowledge and skills.  Classes combine teacher-directed instruction with group work promoting personal achievement and a spirit of cooperation. The program also stresses the development of self-discipline and independent work habits.
