Saint George’s Lower School is a great place to learn
Walking into the Lower School, your child begins a new journey into learning. Our community celebrates the joy of working and playing together. SGS will encourage your child to explore their diverse world, expand their creativity, develop their sense of self, and build lasting friendships. Our teachers provide an enriched environment that nurtures our core values of honesty, respect, generosity of spirit, and best efforts.
Our mission statement, “Inspiring scholars, athletes, and artists to serve and lead others,” drives our rigorous and innovative curriculum in the classroom, on the field or stage, and in the community. The personal teacher-student connection fosters self-expression, inquiry, critical thinking, and risk-taking. Together, we pursue our passion to be lifelong learners.
In the private school setting, our teachers are free to develop a comprehensive curriculum that strives to propel your child towards their potential. Your child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection. Collaborating with others or working individually, your child will receive a solid foundation in the core subjects with emphasis in developing 21st Century Skills and global awareness.
Come visit the Lower School where the spirit of discovery, the excitement of learning, and the joy of being a child is boundless.

Saint George's students' "Generosity of Spirit" is reaching out to help others in need. The 3rd graders will donate all $646.19 of profits from their business, Sunny Snack Shack, to a California community trying to rebuild after last summer's horrific wildfires. Third-grade teacher Denie Inman reached out to Paradise Unified School District, and their response was one of pure gratitude. The business donation will go towards purchasing needed science supplies, such as solar and wind kits, along with passes for their first and third-graders to go on a field trip to Table Mountain.
"Table Mountain is a local formation that has amazing wildflower blooms this time of year," said the educational coordinator for Paradise District. "With the rain we have had following the fire, wildflowers are blooming in uncommon numbers. This will be an amazing experience for these students. It really touches everyone to know we are still in your thoughts."

Coach James Stripes reports that the high scorer from SGS was 5th grader Rohan Dhillon, who tied for 7th place overall among all 188 individual competitors. He and 4th grader Per Sande represented the 4th-6th graders at State. See a Photo Gallery of some of the competitors and their trophies. Go Dragons!
Each child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection.
