Welcome to the Lower School

Overview

Welcome to the Lower School

When you visit our Lower School, you will see and feel the happy buzz of activity that is a Country Day hallmark: students joyfully discovering more about their world together through literature and writing, music and the arts, science and mathematics, movement and technology.

But all of the subject areas we teach are really just the vehicles through which we are building terrific people with generous and compassionate hearts, inquisitive and interested intellects, and healthy and active bodies.  We help children find and use their voices to express their ideas, to share their opinions, and to thoughtfully and respectfully comment on those of others.

Lower School is where expert, creative, and loving teachers help children build a solid and deep foundation of skills in critical reading, logical reasoning, careful observation, and the ability to share their learning with others in speech, writing, and the arts. At Country Day, learning is invigorating with hands-on, active learning projects and experiences. We live our learning as much as possible, immersing ourselves in a rich curriculum of integrated units of study. We never turn down an opportunity to walk a mile or more in the shoes of those who came before us- and if we can do it wearing a costume, all the better!

Of course, the best way to know what our Lower School is like is to see it in action. We hope that you will visit and find out for yourself what makes our school beautiful and unique. We look forward to welcoming you in person when you come to our lovely campus, peek into our light-filled, inviting classrooms, and experience the joy of our students!
