A healthy balance

Lower School

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 enjoy math, social studies, reading, writing and other lessons in their own classroom. As a close school community, we know every student as a unique and an imaginative learner. Our goal is to spark their interest, capture their attention and let them fall into their own love of learning.

Think Pennfield is out of reach? Think again! We encourage families to reach out and talk to us about various financial options. We offer a 10-month payment plan, need-based financial aid for families applying to kindergarten – grade 8, and  U.S. Active Duty military rates. The Pennfield School recognizes the financial challenges of independent education, and we will work with you to help make our school an affordable option.
