Lower School

Lower School Philosophy

Bullis students start their educational journey in the Lower School where girls and boys in grades three, four and five explore the world around them in a nurturing, supportive environment.

Teachers in the Lower School don't think of the day as having “periods.” Rather, they teach subjects in long blocks of time that are appropriate to the subject matter. The innovative curriculum in the Lower School is integrated across subject areas, incorporating skills in several disciplines.

Lower School teachers love working with young children and share their students’ curiosity. They use creative hands-on projects, technology and field trips to impart knowledge and to make the classroom enjoyable.
