KNOW, LOVE AND CHALLENGE.
What if your teacher's mission is to make learning come alive for you?
What if the morning routine was easy because of your child’s excitement to get to school? What if lessons came alive through teachers with a mission to know, love and challenge each child? What if growth was measured in perseverance, confidence and independence (rather than grades)? What if the community your family joined brought you to school on Saturdays to meet at the school playground? Enroll with fifty-three other families for five magical years shaped by twenty-five outstanding professions at Presbyterian School!
In the Lower School, we seek to know, love and challenge each of our students. Relationships lead to learning!
Christy Heno, Head of Lower School
In addition to their classroom teachers, Lower School students benefit from a variety of specialists in Academic Enrichment, Art, Chapel, PE, Learning Commons, Music, Science, and Think.Make.Talk every week.
Our low teacher to student ratio supports small classes that are more "high-touch" ensuring that our culture of intimate challenge and confidence in every child characterizes each family's experience.
All students benefit from designated time to THINK deeply about problems, ideas, and research; creatively MAKE real-world applications out of their thinking; and TALK about what they've made.
We strive to achieve the optimum blend of work and play, sport and art, in order to develop the academic, spiritual, physical, social, and emotional foundations in each child.
Each grade participates in and hosts a signature interactive "museum" event unique to their grade. Student research and inquiry lead to experiential learning and thoughtful rehearsal produces a polished performance.
Failing doesn't mean giving up at Presbyterian School.
