Kindergarten through 5th Grade
Rivermont's Lower School provides an academically rigorous yet nurturing environment. You can feel the energy in our halls and classrooms, filled with projects, writing, and artwork that reflect an enthusiasm for learning. A walk through Lower School classrooms will show students involved in everything from programming robots to constructing Native American dwellings to singing in French and Spanish. Teachers have the flexibility to focus on each student's learning style and students feel comfortable taking risks in academics, arts, and athletics.
Beginning in Kindergarten, Lower School students meet with discipline-specific teachers in science, foreign language, visual art, library, music, and health and fitness. These specialized teachers are not only experts in their respective disciplines, but also provide students with exposure to a variety of teaching styles.
