What Makes Our Lower School Special?
At Saint Edward's School, we believe it is important to establish a relationship based on trust with our young students in order to build a strong and safe foundation that allows the children to approach their learning journey with confidence. A strong sense of trust enables them to pursue their curiosity and wonder. Problem-solving, based on the THINK Mathematics learning strategies, begins in Little Pirates (our PreK-4 program). 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 and academic questions across the curriculum. This approach encourages self-reliance and creates capable life-long learners.
