We view learning as a journey, valuing the process and product. We believe in a balanced instructional approach, and learning occurs through whole-group direct instruction, differentiated learning groups, independent exploration, and one-on-one conferences. Throughout all these experiences, we cultivate the gift of curiosity and provide the tools and strategies to access information and knowledge.
We model the process of active listening and clear communication, teaching children to resolve conflicts, make thoughtful decisions and engage in responsible behavior. Our goal is to develop engaged citizens through exposure to diverse cultures, collaborative learning experiences and creative explorations. Our students prepare to move beyond the Lower School as competent, secure and effective members of their future communities.
