Lower School, Grades 1-5
As children enter the elementary school, they are guided by a Class Teacher who carries them through Grades 1 through 8. Students and teachers develop a deep and enduring relationship through the shared experience of the main lesson curriculum, where one subject is taught for the first two hours of each day in blocks of three to four weeks.
During each Main Lesson block, the children make their own textbooks, full of illustrations, from subjects presented by the class teacher. It is the goal of each class teacher to bring the curriculum to their class in ways that will excite and enthuse, leading each student to question, learn, dream, and explore!
