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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
The Kindergarten class created a coral reef along one wall of their classroom and learned all about the creatures that inhabit a reef. See a 1-Minute Video of them naming different creatures of the reef, as well as photo galleries of the Reef and Decorated Books about the fish in a reef and of Hawaiian Day when they brought their stuffed animals and played Coral Reef Bingo!
The Kindergarten class created hearts to hang in the new Arts Building Gallery, while the 1st graders painted colorful hearts that are on display across the building's bottom front windows. And Lower School students created paper cubes that combined into one of the biggest hearts you are likely to see. Check out photo galleries of the Kindergarten Hearts, the 1st Grade Hearts, and the Paper Cube Heart. Happy Valentine's Day!
Each child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection.
