Lower School (K-5)

The kindergarten curriculum emphasizes emotional, social, and academic growth and progress.  The present program offers a sequential phonetic approach to reading readiness.  The math program allows the children to progress from recognizing basic shapes, comparing sizes, working with numerals to early stages of addition and subtraction.  Due to the structure and demand of our program, the teachers, administrators and Executive Board have agreed to the following:  Each child must be five on or before September 30 for consideration of entry into kindergarten for the school year.

Pre-Kindergarten will be offered to children who are four years old on or before September 30.  The Pre-Kindergarten operates on the regular school calendar.  The child will attend five days a week from 8:25 a.m. to 2:56 p.m.  The Pre-K curriculum is designed with social development and interaction as its primary objective.  The program also will expose the children to the readiness skills necessary for successful kindergarten experience.  

Pre-K - 4 classes are self contained which affords a close working relationship between teacher and students.  Classes in grades 5 are departmentalized which offers concentrated study in subject fields.
