Lower School

The Lower School curriculum lays the foundation for the skills Carmel School students need to be successful in the Middle and Upper schools.

Our curriculum in Kindergarten through fifth grade (K-5) helps to provide each student with the social and academic skills he or she needs to explore and interact with the world as an effective learner.  By exposing students to higher-level thinking questions, problem-solving skills, technological tools, the writing process, as well as community-building activities, we encourage our students to use these skills. In turn, they become stronger members of a community and independent learners.
