Lower School Curriculum

The curriculum for each grade includes language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, library, music, physical education, and Spanish or Prima Lingua. The program for each grade is exciting, challenging, and developmentally appropriate. Instrumental music lessons, a Lower School string ensemble, after-school clubs with a wide range of offerings, and Saturday morning basketball and swimming complement the Lower School program.

Every fall, Lower School students make "stone soup." In the traditional fable of Stone Soup, a stranger comes to a stingy town and convinces the townspeople that he can make a soup using just a magic stone and some water. Bit by bit he persuades them to add ingredients until the soup becomes rich with meat and vegetables, and the town learns the power of cooperation.
