How We Think About Teaching and Learning

The Lower Elementary School’s developmental program is designed to meet the needs of young children, knowing that each child is unique and will develop on their own timeline.

Our program presents a balanced focus on the whole child: socio-emotionally, intellectually, physically, and aesthetically. At the heart of our beliefs, actions, and philosophy is an understanding and respect for young children as unique, capable, and curious learners.

Our LES Curriculum

The GCDS concept of TIGER PRIDE plays an integral role in our culture and is woven throughout the daily life in the Lower Elementary ensuring that important aspects of character are meaningfully taught, modeled, practiced, and reflected upon. Our program is designed to provide the foundations for long-term student success by ensuring that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
