Lower School Student Life
Lower School students are full of energy and wonder, and are an important part of the life of the whole school.
Once a week, students join together for chapel, where we celebrate differences, share viewpoints, and find common ground. Lower School students also volunteer for school-wide community service, like the Pink Out for a Cure, the Little Rock Marathon, and the ArCANsas Food Drive. They play on teams, cheer at pep rallies, perform in our Christmas pageant, and display their art in our corridors and classrooms. In clubs and activities, students make lasting friendships and show us their promise in action.
Music and Drama
When students begin to discover their promise, they need creative ways to express it. Lower School students enjoy music and drama classes twice a week. We use the Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly methods. Everyone is up and moving with songs and instrumental music from many cultures. Our students also shine in Lower School choral concerts, drama productions, theatre games, and acting exercises.
Lower School Sports
Our students are active, fit and ready to compete. In the Lower School, it’s all about the joy of movement, fitness, teamwork and healthy competition. On our playground, younger students love to run, jump, climb, and play games. Outdoor time is often the best time to bond with friends. We also have our own gymnasium, with a junior-size basketball court, full-size volleyball court, and locker rooms. Many older students join organized sports and look forward to playing on Upper School teams.
