Lower School includes Beginner 1 through Form 2, roughly equivalent to kindergarten through third grade. Delphi's Lower School curriculum provides a rich program that teaches basic skills, keeping that natural&
nbsp;thirst for learning alive and growing. The greatest emphasis is placed on reading, writing and mathematics, surrounded by a broad experiential program.
Beyond the focus on competence in basics, Delphi introduces students to a wide variety of academic subjects. Designed with an integrated approach, the Lower School curriculum includes study of geography, history, science, music, art, poetry and even communication skills. In addition, our teaching methods engage students in creative activities which encourage the exploration of their surroundings and help them relate what they learn to real life.
Students in the Lower School spend well over half their day involved in some kind of hands-on activities or creative projects. This is because young children learn a great deal by observing the world around them. We encourage this by getting students involved in activities both inside and outside the classroom.
Lower School students get a chance to spend time in the school’s Science Lab engaging in a variety of research projects as part of their regular curriculum in biology, chemistry and physics. Field trips are scheduled regularly and are a key element of the Lower School experience. Emphasis on hands-on learning gets the Lower School students out on bi-weekly field trips to a variety of destinations.
Lower School students receive instruction in art, music, or drama on a daily basis and take part in multiple art shows and performances throughout the year, including our annual Lower School musical.
