A coeducational day school serving students JK-12

Lower School Curriculum

Lower school students start each day together as a class with Morning Meeting. An important part of the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching, it is an engaging way to begin the day, build community and establish developmentally appropriate social skills.

In the younger grades, teachers direct morning meeting, while in third and fourth grades, the meetings are student-led. Morning meeting allows students to build cooperation skills, learn responsibility, develop empathy for each other and gain skills that help them become more self-aware.

Students are well versed in the "power of yet" and the value in continuing to grow, defying expectations or limitations.
