Our first through fourth grade programs focus on student responsibility, purpose, and spirit.
In first through fourth grade our students learn to ask questions, make discoveries, and discover answers for themselves. Students are empowered to engage, participate in rich discussions, and speak in front of others. Woven into a mastery of core and specialty curriculum is a concentration on problem-solving, critical thinking skills, and creative expression.
At Episcopal Day, the social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum. To build a close-knit student community, each classroom starts its day with a Morning Meeting, as part of our Responsive Classroom approach to creating a caring, supportive student body. Morning Meeting is a time for students to greet each other, express themselves, and set the tone for the day.
Small class sizes enable our exceptional faculty to understand each student’s learning method. Teachers collaborate as a team across classes and grades to support our students' growth and build dynamic, creative curriculum. After all, we care for our children's development, and cultivating their love of learning brings us great joy.
