Lower School

The Lower School curriculum balances enrichment with the mastery of foundational skills. Our caring and experienced teachers recognize and support individual needs and differences while emphasizing teamwork and collaboration--critical 21st-century skills. We encourage and challenge our students to reach their full potential in every area and activity they explore, enhancing their critical thinking, creativity and self-expression. They confidently progress from concrete, multi-sensory experiences to abstract thinking in a true community based in kindness, respect and honesty.


A spirit of inquiry, enthusiasm for learning and cooperative spirit are clearly evident in Garrison Forest's Lower School.
