Lower School Curriculum
The Epiphany lower school creates a strong foundation for a life full of learning and seeking new experiences. Our Spanish immersion program is a hallmark of our lower school curriculum, and its benefits reach far beyond becoming fluent in a valuable second language. Students are taught the value of working together and learn important interpersonal relationship skills as well as developing the necessary skills to thrive in middle school.
- Small class sizes equal personalized, individualized attention (8:1 student to faculty ratio)
- Lower School students begin Kindergarten in a 50% Spanish and 50% English setting and continue this structure through the end of second grade. Spanish language learning continues each day in grades 3-5, with more instructional time devoted to other core subjects in English.
