Lower School is a wonderful time of growth and learning at Nashoba Brooks. Our boys and girls — whether shy or outgoing, silly or serious — find a home here for their energy and learning styles. We delight in their accomplishments and in the relationships that we develop with them and their families. We are a community in the Lower School.
In Lower School, students transition from focusing on their individual needs to thinking about the group and the world around them. This is a rewarding period for students as they develop knowledge, skills, and strategies that help them solve problems independently and collaboratively. We know that to thrive children need the freedom to explore ideas, to ask questions, and to take risks. We provide those opportunities and much more. Our classrooms provide an atmosphere where creative thinking and joyful learning thrive.
