Lower School Mission Statement

The King Lower School provides an academic foundation for elementary school aged students in Grades PreK-5. The Lower School experience is grounded in educational excellence and in developing students’ love of learning by fostering the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of each individual student in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Children thrive in King’s diverse and engaging environment that recognizes individual talents and learning styles and guides students to become independent, inquisitive learners, and critical thinkers. Thus, students are guided to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and a respect and appreciation for others and the larger world around them. Child-centered classrooms focus on the acquisition and development of elementary, core skills and problem-solving strategies through innovative educational activities. This pedagogical approach enables our students to evolve into confident, globally-oriented, lifelong learners who consistently strive towards their full potential.

Global Education

The Global Education Program at King aims to develop students' knowledge of the world's cultural diversity within the context of globalization. Students learn the similarities and differences connecting all cultures in an effort to foster multicultural understanding. By developing in students an educated awareness of our increasingly interdependent world, King prepares them to recognize the need for their active participation in ethical, cultural, socio-economic, political, scientific and environmental issues.

Media and Technology

The Computer Science Program teaches students to use various digital media to express their creativity, model real-world phenomena, and/or discover innovative ways of posing and solving problems. Technology is used in an applied fashion to provide a space in which to conceptualize, design, and create, and as a tool to drive independent inquiry, collaboration, and exploration.
