Lower School Learning Program

Learning essential life-long skills

Bullis students start their educational journey in the Lower School where girls and boys in grades K through five learn essential life-long skills in a joyous environment amid a verdant 102-acre campus.

Classroom teachers take full advantage of the flexible schedule to delve deeply into the rigorous curriculum while also acknowledging children’s need to explore and play. Small class sizes provide plenty of time for individual attention, where students are both challenged and supported. The Responsive Classroom methodology provides a nurturing social curriculum that promotes civil discourse, empathy and the development of good manners. The Lower School curriculum is integrated across subject areas, with a particular emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics.

Lower School teachers are innovative, highly skilled and constantly searching for ways to grow and improve their craft. They develop creative, hands-on projects; use technology in ways that promote reflection, collaboration and communication; and design field trips that take full advantage of our nation’s capital.
