Renbrook’s Lower School seeks to promote students to the Upper School who are joyful, resilient, lifelong learners. Lower School embraces a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that recognizes the learning style and developmental needs of each student. This personalized learning approach engages every student at every level, bringing learning to life. Helping each Renbrook student find joy in the learning process is central to Renbrook’s mission. The curricular program, from Preschool through Grade 5, is designed with students’ developmental ages and stages in mind, so that we can meet students where
they are and teach them as they grow. This balanced program offers students a wide variety of experiences and learning environments that prepare them well for the middle school years.
Actively involved in every learning space, Renbrook students take ownership of the learning process at a very early age. Teachers facilitate a curriculum that initiates questions and higher-level thinking, while recognizing that students take in and process information in different ways. By knowing a student's learning style, our teachers use a variety of teaching methods that maximize student learning. Students, in turn, learn to recognize their individual learning styles to find the study methods, environment, and activities that best help each of them to learn.
