Lower School teachers (PreK-5) work in self-contained classrooms of typically 20 students each. Lower School teachers focus on three core academic areas: mathematics, language arts, and social studies. Physical education, Spanish language, science, music, art, library, and computer technology are taught by specialists. Collaboration and communication between homeroom and specialist teachers is a high value in the Lower School.
