Curriculum

The Lower School offers both an International Pathway, with an emphasis on academic English, and a Bilingual Pathway, with an emphasis on both academic English and German.

Our holistic program balances the development of concepts, skills and character. We focus on the total growth of your child including their social, physical, emotional and cultural needs while offering academic excellence.

Guided inquiry, collaboration and communication are central to our approach to teaching and learning and we provide an environment for your child that fosters the development of problem solving and critical thinking while they master core subject content.
