Saint George’s Lower School is a great place to learn
Walking into the Lower School, your child begins a new journey into learning. Our community celebrates the joy of working and playing together. SGS will encourage your child to explore their diverse world, expand their creativity, develop their sense of self, and build lasting friendships. Our teachers provide an enriched environment that nurtures our core values of honesty, respect, generosity of spirit, and best efforts.
Our mission statement, “Inspiring scholars, athletes, and artists to serve and lead others,” drives our rigorous and innovative curriculum in the classroom, on the field or stage, and in the community. The personal teacher-student connection fosters self-expression, inquiry, critical thinking, and risk-taking. Together, we pursue our passion to be lifelong learners.
In the private school setting, our teachers are free to develop a comprehensive curriculum that strives to propel your child towards their potential. Your child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection. Collaborating with others or working individually, your child will receive a solid foundation in the core subjects with emphasis in developing 21st Century Skills and global awareness.
Come visit the Lower School where the spirit of discovery, the excitement of learning, and the joy of being a child is boundless.

Now you can view the video on the SGS Art and Music Program that premiered at the Spring Gala "Art Party" on May 4. Thank you to everyone that joined us for an enjoyable evening of fellowship and fundraising. We raised over $150,000 at that enjoyable evening of fellowship and fundraising, and then SGS received several additional gifts to help us reach our goal for the evening -- supporting the new LS/MS Arts Center and Technology upgrades. Enjoy watching the Arts Video, and you can still support these initiatives through the Gala Giving Page. The architects are completing the design documents for the new facility and the school plans to break ground this summer!
The last morning of Lower School on Wednesday, June 5 featured the traditional Red & White Day games for everyone to enjoy! See a Photo Gallery of the students competing in races, tug of war, egg tosses, tennis court hockey, and just generally getting wet on a warm day.
The 5th graders formally crossed the bridge to the Middle School on May 30, being cheered by the rest of the Lower School, congratulated by their teachers, and welcomed by the Middle School and their families. See a photo gallery of the Bridge Crossing Ceremony and another gallery of images from their Luncheon & Games afterwards. A delicious and fun way to finish 5th grade!
Each child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection.
