Lower School
Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 5

At Bancroft School, we are not only knowledgeable about education, we are smart about kids. We know that every child is unique, so we base our teaching on flexibility and creativity. In the Lower School, small group and one-to-one learning grants teachers the opportunity to connect with students personally and adapt lessons to their individual learning styles, levels of mastery, and even their interests.

Our world-class faculty stays on the cutting edge of childhood education by constantly learning and employing new teaching strategies scientifically proven to be the most effective. They develop the Lower School curriculum as a team, integrating learning opportunities that are interdisciplinary in nature.

In addition to the critical thinking and creative learning skills needed to become leaders in the classroom, our lessons focus on fostering social values such as respect and responsibility. By establishing an inclusive peer community of toy-sharers and class buddies, the Lower School teaches children to become confident and socially intelligent students, classmates, and friends.

Our nurturing environment ensures that all Lower School children follow their own path to reach their greatest potential—and blossom into engaged, enthusiastic scholars with a diverse range of talents.
