The curriculum offers a bevy of academic and social experiences, each designed to encourage boys to realize scholastic and ethical growth. Academically, small class sizes provide each student the opportunity to participate, learn accountability, and develop autonomy. Study and organizational skills are fostered, and boys learn to accept increased responsibilities in academic situations as they progress from grades 3 through 5.
In addition to its rigorous traditional academics, the Lower School offers many opportunities for boys to grow, including arts, music, language and athletics. Throughout the year, the Lower School experience is enriched by off-campus field trips that extend the material learned in the classroom and encourage boys to enjoy time together in a non-classroom setting.
Taken together, these experiences in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in the community help Lower School boys develop relationships with peers, teachers and ideas.
The Head of Lower School is Len Armstrong.
