Every student is an individual at The Pennfield School and is celebrated for their unique strengths and talents. It is a place where making mistakes is okay and learning from them is applauded. We know that to motivate a child to their highest levels we must be rigorous yet nurturing, always challenging but with respect for different ways of learning, forever encouraging and tirelessly supportive. It is also well known that children need and enjoy a healthy balance of work, play and physical activity throughout each day
An interesting and varied Lower School schedule has kids at the playground and in fields and trails on campus at least twice a day, going to school assembly every morning and to varied music, library, computer lab, art, Spanish and physical education classes in different rooms and studios in the academic building. They each have their own desk in their own classroom as well and enjoy math, social studies, reading, writing and other lessons there. As a close school community we know every student as a unique and imaginative learner. Our goal is to spark their interest, capture their attention and let them fall into their own love of learning.
