The Lower School experience at Christ Episcopal School is dedicated to providing a warm, supportive environment which emphasizes self-esteem and a solid foundation in the basic skills. The faculty is committed to the development of the whole child during this formative period.
The Lower School is comprised of kindergarten, first, second, third, and fourth grades. The school day is filled with a curriculum which stresses active participation in all phases of a strong academic program.
The basic curriculum includes reading, mathematics, phonics, handwriting, and social studies. The reading program stresses language development and engages the students in a community of readers and writers. Phonics integrates basic word study skills with the reading program and is an essential component of the Lower School curriculum. The math program concentrates on a mastery of basic concepts and problem solving skills through active participation. Students have Spanish, science, computers, art and music on a weekly basis. Organized physical education is an important part of everyday life for the students. If individual circumstances require additional resources, enrichment and individual assistance can be provided through our Learning Specialists.
Christ Episcopal School is committed to recognizing individual potential, fostering the growth of talent and creating a life-long learner in every child.
