Lower School Curriculum
Big Opportunities, Ideas, Friendships, and Dreams
Grounded in a sense of caring and the pedagogy of Responsive Classroom, Lower School students accept academic challenges while embracing both community and individual responsibility. Students develop as solution-oriented children, thinking critically, and being resourceful.
Lower School Weekly Schedule
Bullis operates on a trimester system: the first trimester ends at Thanksgiving, the second ends in early March and the third at the end of the school year in early June.
Lower School students have classes each week in all grades with elementary educators beyond homeroom. These experts in math, science, art, music, dance, physical education, library, design, and movement work with Lower School students and forge relationships that last throughout their time at Bullis.
- Homeroom: Language Arts, Math, Social Studies
- Physical Education
