The Lower School (Grades PK-5) curriculum revolves around instruction in language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. In language arts an emphasis is placed on encouraging a love of reading, writing, and oral expression with additional instruction in spelling and vocabulary. Mathematics teaching is enriched by frequent use of manipulatives to assist in conceptual learning. Social Studies begins with the family and then expands to help children learn about their community, state, country, and the world. The science curriculum emphasizes experiential learning through the use of manipulative activities and experiments. The classroom curriculum is further enhanced by instruction in French and Spanish, art, music, library science, computers, and physical education.
