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?

In the Lower School, we aim to build relationships with each student based on trust and joy that inspire deep and exciting learning!!
Jessica Varela, 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.
