Lower School (K-6)

WELCOME TO THE LOWER SCHOOL: GRADES K-6. THE LOWER SCHOOL PROVIDES A LEARNING ATMOSPHERE FILLED WITH ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.

Children are encouraged to be curious and creative while developing confidence in their abilities. The curriculum is traditional in nature with an emphasis on reading, writing, and math, yet the teaching and learning process is child-centered. Written and designed by the faculty, our program is unique to Brentwood School. Grades study various themes integrated with the subjects of social studies, science, and other “special” subjects. Basic skills are taught, and the thematic approach encourages students to retain their enthusiasm and love for learning at the same time as they are learning the basic building blocks of school work.

Community of Caring

The core values of trust, respect, responsibility, honesty, caring, community, and diversity build the foundation of our community and our character education program at Brentwood School. Learn More »

March 14 marks Pi Day across the nation and is eagerly anticipated in the 6th Grade classrooms at the Lower School each year. Pi is an irrational number, commonly approximated to 3.14, that is introduced in our study of geometry.
