Lower School - Kindergarten through Grade 5
In Lower School, Wooster offers a safe, nurturing, and personalized environment. All students are known. Teachers across grades get to know each student personally. From early morning arrival, to rotating lunch tables, to recess duty, and end-of-day pick-ups, teachers are building relationships with students.
We take pride in calling ourselves a family, providing a warm, nurturing environment for our students. This allows them to feel socially and academically safe. Small class size helps foster this trust and safety. Bi-weekly staff meetings are held to discuss students, Kindergarten through Grade 5, and support them in their educational and social success at Wooster. Teaching is individualized and engaging in order to ensure that every student reaches his or her potential. A Lower School graduate minds what matters by demonstrating what it means to be gentle, generous, truthful, kind, and brave as they enter into the Wooster Middle School experience.
