Westminster’s lower school (grades K – 2) offers your child a remarkable adventure in learning, fun, friendship, and personal development. Within a warm, nurturing environment, students are encouraged and taught how to exercise independence, responsibility, respect, and kindness, as well as the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to their delight in learning—today and always. Firmly grounded in the school’s overall mission and philosophy, the lower-school program provides a carefully planned, consistent approach to all aspects of your child’s intellectual, emotional, and social development.
Students in the lower school are excited about coming to school each day and proud of what they accomplish. Daily work and special projects provide many opportunities to explore the world, discover special interests, and exercise their creativity. A challenging curriculum provides opportunities to learn about a broad array of subjects at an accelerated rate.
