The Lower School nurtures students’ creativity and sense of wonder as the first steps on a path toward lifelong learning. Quaker values inform every aspect of our school day, inspiring students to see how kindness and empathy can shape their lives, our community, and the world.


Children inherently understand Quaker values like equity and justice, and they are awed by nature and the environment. The Lower School nurtures Quaker values in our children and allows them to carry that understanding deep within.– Lower School Parent
