At Hillbrook’s Lower School, every student–no matter how young–understands they are a unique and powerful person with the ability to choose how they will make a difference in the world.
Our Lower School students are respected as learners who are actively engaged in their own journeys. Experienced teachers guide their explorations which are as much about finding joy in the process as they are about finding answers. The Lower School curriculum is challenging, flexible, and anchored in standards – it’s designed to keep bodies active and minds reflective as our students sharpen their skills and broaden their understanding of the world, their community, and themselves. Our students understand that the most satisfying learning happens when they go beyond what’s comfortable and take a risk–and they’re not afraid to do it within a school community built on kindness.
