Elementary Program (Kindergarten Through Fourth Grade)
The Lower School is the beginning of our students’ formal academic journey. It is also a time of individual growth – a time to discover new ideas, be inspired, and nurture growing interests. We believe that a balanced program focusing on essential skills and spiritual development helps produce future leaders.
Math in Focus
Math in Focus (MIF) is especially strong in developing conceptual understanding. It differs from the original Singapore series in that it is also aligned with the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) standards… the math standards that prevail in the U.S. However, unlike most programs aligned with the NCTM standards, it does not try to teach every concept every year.
