Academics

Lower School

The learning environment at in the Lower School focuses on the academic, social and emotional well-being of the students. From the first day of Pre-kindergarten, students are made aware of the global world beyond their immediate surroundings. We use a variety of activities and experiences that encourage responsible, independent and caring individuals. Kindness and respect, as well as the core subjects and enrichment opportunities, are key factors in our daily instruction.
It is important to gain the trust of our young students in order to establish a strong and safe foundation that allows the children to approach their learning journey with the confidence that enables them to pursue their curiosity and wonder. Problem solving, based on the Singapore math strategies, begins in Pre-kindergarten. The teachers at all levels create age appropriate problems and encourage the children to solve the problems either in a group setting or individually. This problem solving method is not exclusive to math, but is effective in solving social issues or many other academic questions. This approach encourages self-reliant and capable life-long learners.

    Angel Tree Information Coming Soon

    As we have done in the past, Saint Edward's School has adopted over 150 children from Redlands Christian Migrant Preschool to provide Christmas gifts. Each of these children depends on us to provide gifts, as they most likely will not get any others. This is a wonderful opportunity for our school to give back to the community and help less fortunate children. Students may pick their Angel as soon as we get specific details from the preschool. Gifts will need to be back at School by Friday, December 13, 2019.
