Lower School Student Life

In Lower School, students are introduced to a variety of fun and socially enriching activities that build a strong sense of community and school pride. Our vibrant student life also encourages relationship building and empathy. 

Assemblies provide enriching and engaging experiences as our Lower School children come together to learn presentation skills and how to be a respectful member of an audience.

Grandparents and Special Friends
Activities such as Grandparents and Special Friends Day, Upper School "Study Buddies," writing letters to pen-pals, and participating in service days encourages relationships between adults and students of all ages.

Before and After School Programs
The Before and After School Program is designed for full-day Lower School students from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on school days. The program provides a safe "neighborhood," where children are free to unwind and get together with friends, eat a snack, do their homework, join in an activity, or play on the playgrounds.

Masquerade March
Each October, our Preprimary and Lower School students march through the Middle School/Upper School gymnasium in festive costumes, flanked by Upper School students, during our Masquerade March.

Family-style Dining
Family-style dining gives students opportunities to get to know and appreciate each other, make new friends, and socialize with teachers and students of different ages.
