Preparing children for a life-long love of learning
Our Lower School (referred to as Cohorts 1, 2, 3) is an environment buzzing with the sounds of happy, enthusiastic children on a journey of exploration, curiosity, creativity, and experimentation. As a critical cognitive and social development period, we teach through engaging the children in the art of “play,” one-on-one teacher instruction, group lessons and technology for practice of skills.
Daily, children experience Mandarin Chinese, core academic subjects, and outdoor play along with Yorktown’s values of responsibility, respect, and innovation. Additional classes include Drama, Art, Typing/Poetry, Physical Education, and Life Skills.
Our Lower School is comprised of three classes, each having a teacher/student ratio of no more than 1:15. The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m.
