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.
