The Lower School Educational Experience
The Lower School Schedule
Teachers at Hillbrook collaborate extensively to design school days that engage and inspire young learners. Students in JK-4th grade start each day in homeroom with Morning Meeting, emphasizing social emotional learning (SEL) and community-building, and remain there for core subjects like mathematics, social studies and literacy. They visit specialist teachers for science, Spanish, art, music, physical education and library. Hillbrook also dedicates time in the schedule each week to empowering students to “reach beyond themselves to make a difference in the world,” through authentic and meaningful service, community building, leadership, and civic engagement opportunities. Each and every day, our beautiful outdoor learning spaces invite children to explore nature and express themselves through movement and play.
