Lower School K-5
Bullis Lower School students discover joy in learning. The curriculum encourages students to explore, create, and analyze the world around them — setting the tone for the Bullis community.
- We start each day in Morning Meeting, which builds both community and a clear sense of individual responsibility.
- Through a well-integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum, Lower School students develop skills in all subject areas.
- Teachers embrace ways to provide individual instruction based on student need and interest, finding challenging and innovative ways to stretch student learning to meet high expectations.
Ask our youngest students – What did you do today?
You are likely to hear things such as —
I learned how to plant seeds; I watched a butterfly emerge; I made a pet robot, I sang a new song, I made a friend.
At Bullis, these meaningful experiences teach our students to be life-long learners, who actively participate in developing an understanding of the interconnected world around them.
We have so much fun in Lower School — exploring, investigating, asking questions, and trying new things together.
The Campus is Our Playground
Outdoor adventures are an essential part of the experience for students in the Lower School. Our 102-acre campus includes traditional playgrounds, natural play elements sympathetic to the landscape — and an indoor/outdoor science classroom in the Discovery Center.
In Lower School, athletics take the form of noncompetitive physical education and movement classes. Students have a daily opportunity to focus on coordination, collaboration, and body awareness.
As explorers, readers, writers, artists, scientists, and individuals, we follow our curiosity.
With Bullis, you can be a part of something big in a community just your size.
