The Lower School at Stuart
Jr. Kindergarten – Grade 4
In the journey of learning, first steps are crucial.
When a girl comes to Stuart, she enters a kind and collaborative community. In this all-girl environment, girls are encouraged, and expected, to try new things, participate, work together, and be leaders. They live up to our high expectations by becoming as responsible as they are independent. Guided by exceptional faculty, outstanding academics, and the Sacred Heart Goals, Stuart girls gain self-confidence and self-awareness. They go beyond acquiring knowledge and skills for their future and develop a thirst for more.
A Stuart girl’s journey begins in the Lower School where:
Our homeroom teachers work closely with literacy, math and STEM specialists to know each girl's strengths and challenges.
Our Math Program is built on the idea that children are problem solvers by nature. Teachers guide our girls to make sense of problems, develop strong problem solving skills, and persevere through complex real world applications. Through conceptual understanding and math discussions, students become efficient and flexible problem solvers.
Early and consistent exposure to female role models help Stuart girls see their own possibilities.
A social awareness that impels to action begins in the earliest years at Stuart. Our campus ministry and service learning programs help to nurture every girl's sense of independence, leadership, and purpose. This video by first grade girls highlights just one of many programs in the Lower School at Stuart.
