Learning can—and should—be fun! In the Lower School, students will discover a lively center of learning infused with the joy and excitement of discovery. Through an academically enriched, rigorous curriculum, students in kindergarten through grade 4 build on the academic, social-emotional, physical, and spiritual groundwork established by the Primary School program.
Empowering Learning In and Out of the Classroom
Preparing students for their futures means establishing the right framework for learning—from the start! That’s why the St. Francis Lower School fosters an environment brimming with deliberate instruction provided by dedicated experts. But this learning goes well beyond traditional instruction to ignite students’ passions—developing respectful, responsible and engaged people for others. How? Through a student-centered, inquiry-based education that encourages critical thinking, problem solving, respect for others, and collaborative work.
