Charleston Day School

Lower School

The Early Years: grades 1-5

Fostering a love for learning, the desire to excel, and the value of goal setting and responsibility are paramount to the lower school program.

Here at Charleston Day, we pay attention. The small school setting enables faculty members to know and nurture each individual. Teachers identify students’ strengths and talents. Then, they use those skills to advance ones that are still developing. Students develop confidence and competence through a strong partnership between the school and the home. 

The core curriculum in our elementary program emphasizes developing a love of reading and teaching a high level of skills in writing, grammar, math, public speaking and technology. Students take classes in French or Spanish, art, music, physical education and technology. The development of responsible citizens and effective future leaders is promoted through character class, community service projects and the focus on personal responsibility.
