Lower School Curriculum

Fifth grade student writing at desk

The Lower School curriculum at St. Mark’s is designed to help children develop not only a love of learning but tools for long-term academic success. Our curriculum builds upon the skills and enthusiasm developed in Preschool. The vertically-aligned curriculum in each subject area ensures strong continuity and reinforces skills across the grades.

In grades 1-3, students have one teacher for all core subjects. In grades 4-5, students switch classes and have two teachers for all core subjects. Along with core classes, Lower School students have daily enrichment classes, recess, and P.E.
