Academics in the Lower School draw on an inquiry-based model, with students’ questions and ideas as the driving force in each day’s lessons. A differentiated and challenging learning environment coupled with structure and support nurture curiosity, skill development, and creativity; teachers model a growth mindset and work with students to set individual goals and monitor progress. To provide greater student-teacher interaction, class sizes are kept small, with a lead teacher and co-teacher in each classroom.

The Lower School curriculum cultivates core competencies in math, reading and writing (taught through the workshop model), social studies, and science. In addition, students in Kindergarten through Grade 5 experiment with design thinking in the inGen studio, study Spanish, explore the library, and express themselves through art and music.  At this age, the guidance curriculum centers on self-awareness, building social-emotional connections, and the ideal of becoming a servant leader.
The Lovett School is an independent, coeducational day school where children from Kindergarten through Grade 12 find the courage to explore and the drive to discover.
