Lower School

Lower School students grow in knowledge and character.

Grades K–5

In Lower School, students move through the grammar phase of the classical model. In this stage, students begin to:

Typically, children at this stage love to learn and memorize facts and information. The classical approach allows children to take advantage of this natural ability, learning through playful experiences, creative performances, and the memorization of facts through songs, rhymes and jingles. Geneva School students love to sing, dance, and clap out history timelines, science facts, Bible verses, and grammar rules, and in these ways they learn the core building blocks of all academic subjects.

Every year we fall more in love with the school: the curriculum, the staff, the community. It's such an island of beauty, faith and all the fruits of the Spirit in this city that can be so cynical. Our children love the challenge of French and chess and have been exposed to great art and music at such a young age. Thank you for putting such a feast before them!"
