Lower School

where resilient young thinkers and doers grow!

What if morning routines were easy because of children’s excitement to get to school? What if lessons came alive through teachers who felt their mission was to know, love and challenge each child? What if growth was measured in perseverance, confidence and independence rather than rote tests? What if your school community invited families to enjoy the school playground on Saturdays? Enroll with 53 other families for five magical years shaped by 25 outstanding professionals at Presbyterian School! Schedule a visit to experience the PS difference.
