Students in the Lower School will have their own place within the East High building, creating a small school atmosphere, with 160 students per grade level, and small classes in core subject areas. Staggered start times for the Lower School and Upper Schools will help to nurture the Lower School community. We're also planning for transportation of Lower School students by yellow school buses.
The East Lower School is on the path to becoming an expeditionary learning school, where learning is active, challenging, meaningful, public, and collaborative. The focus will be on college and career readiness and lifelong success, both providing support and challenges that foster literacy, numeracy, problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, persistence toward excellence, and active citizenship.
