The Lower School core curriculum
extends learning beyond the standards of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies to include world language, global studies, design and innovation, and library education.
Teachers facilitate learning using individual and group instruction as well as educational opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom: field trips, special guest speakers, community service and affiliations with organizations such as the San Diego Opera and the La Jolla Playhouse.
We also aim to develop knowledgeable, literate citizens who will become decision-makers in our world, armed with a keen sense of global awareness and responsibility. Spanish-immersion instruction and culture studies prepare students to converse in a global community.
