Lower School
Opportunities to Explore

Exposure and engagement across disciplines

In addition to core academic learning occurring in the classroom, Lower School students experience a number of "Specials," co-curricular classes taught by subject-specific experts. Spanish, technology, PE, lab-based science, art, music, library, and garden all round out an engaging Lower School day, allowing students ample opportunities to grow, learn, and shine in a variety of environments.

Pride and performance

Lower School students demonstrate their learning often, through performances, presentations, and community-wide experiences, including our Fall Concert.

Coaching yields confidence

All PCDS specials teachers are adept at supporting students' emerging skills in a variety of disciplines, including in the swimming pool as a part of our PE program.
