Lower School

Welcome from Kim Lewis, LS Principal

Dear Families, 

The Lower School at Dwight-Englewood School is a vibrant and captivating place. Each classroom is filled with children and adults from very diverse families and experiences. Our primary focus is on the academic, social-emotional and physical growth and success of the children in our care. Daily, the dedicated faculty and staff at Dwight-Englewood School work to foster an environment of engagement that allows our students to encounter rich academic tasks. The students also have the opportunity to explore and to learn with, and from, one another. Each day, our children are astir with great ideas and perspectives about the work that they encounter throughout the school day. These lessons and experiences seek to draw on each child’s creativity. At various times during the school day, students are provided with opportunities to think critically and to receive guidance and support as they demonstrate perseverance through challenging tasks. The full experience in the Lower School helps our students to know that they can, and will, make a difference in our ever-changing world. 

I invite you to learn more about the Lower School.
