Lower School

In Lower School, teachers focus on fostering a love of learning, helping students experience the joy of learning and the wonder of creative exploration. Whether they are working in the Design & Innovation Lab, checking out books in the Heinrich Learning Resource Center, or creating something new in our comprehensive MakerSpace, Lower School students learn through doing, often in cross-curricular projects. St. Johns’ Lower School is all about a solid foundation—in character development, academics, the arts, athletics, you name it. Our diverse curriculum exposes students to a wide variety of subjects, building critical early learning skills and developing talents in our youngest Spartans, setting them on the path to success within our caring, family environment.
