lower school

The Lower School develops boys’ love of learning by focusing on five areas:

  • Building literacy, numeracy, and social skills.

  • Supporting a sense of accomplishment and pride in one’s work.

  • Creating relationships among peers, among teachers and students, and between home and school.

  • Developing a boy’s sense of awareness and responsibility for the broader community

  • Nurturing an awareness of the diversity of our world.

Boys need time to run and to play while actively developing their growing abilities. Through hands-on activities and small group work, our students enjoy a busy and productive day in the classroom and beyond. Faculty members provide intellectual challenge for our students, while guiding them in a deeper understanding of character and social responsibility.
