Lower School Curriculum

Our thematic approach to education unifies learning across disciplines, from the core subjects of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies to specials like art, music, physical education, and foreign languages. The unity allows Friends’ Central Students to develop the confidence to serve as advocates and allies, as well as the skills to articulate their thoughts insightfully and effectively.

The curriculum for each grade includes literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, art, library, music, physical education, and Spanish. The program for each grade is exciting, challenging, and dynamic. To compliment our Lower School curriculum, we offer a wide range of activities including instrumental music lessons, the Lower School string ensemble, a variety of after-school clubs, and the Lower School Electives and Athletics Program for students in grades 3 through 5.
