Pre-K–Grade 4

The Experience

In the Lower School, our boys are the proof that “school” and “joy” can go together. We believe that young boys’ actions speak louder than words—so we watch. When they run into the classroom every morning, eager to begin the day, we know they’re building a foundation of academic, artistic, physical, and social skills they’ll need to thrive throughout their lives.
With attention from teachers who foster a love of learning, boys play, engage, and grow. By demonstrating kindness and respect, faculty and staff nurture these characteristics in our dynamic, curious, and intelligent boys.

Our older Lower School boys wear jackets and ties, sporting them with the same flair and pride that they bring to their attitude about learning. This is joyful, engaging, adventurous, and creative exploration: asking questions, digging in, and learning by doing—with support, encouragement, and challenge. This is the Lower School Experience.
