St. Ma!hew’s Lower School consists of one class at each grade level. Each
class is selfcontained and teamtaught by two educators who take
responsibility for planning, teaching and monitoring the success of all
learners in the class. The two full#me teachers work together and share
their exper#se to build a dynamic learning environment at each grade level.
Homeroom teachers have access to breakout rooms, which allow teachers
to work with smaller groups and/or individuals.
An integrated curriculum provides a strong founda#on in literaturebased
reading, phonics, wri#ng, handson mathema#cs, social studies, and
technology and innova#on. Specialist teachers also work with students
during the week in the areas of art, music, science, library, and physical
educa#on. Students have countless opportuni#es to develop and refine
cogni#ve and social skills. Within this challenging yet nurturing environment,
there is a strong emphasis on building character and empathy as well as a
focus on service learning. Children develop curiosity, express crea#vity,
appreciate the value of hard work and experience the joy of learning.
