Lower School Overview

Students begin their journey toward becoming lifelong learners in Bradford Prep’s Lower School. Our students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade are immersed in classes that allow them to stretch their minds and challenge their thinking. Bradford Prep strives to enrich and accelerate the pace of academics during the school year all while working to meet the social, emotional, and physical needs of our students. All students at Bradford Prep take daily PE classes and have art, Spanish and music classes weekly. 

At Bradford Prep in grades K-8, we use then Core Knowledge Curriculum for Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. The Core Knowledge Curriculum is based on the Core Knowledge Sequence, which is a spiraling sequence of topics that focuses on history, science, and the humanities. These topics are integrated throughout the language arts curriculum. The format of the sequence is taught in a way that is supported by the brain-based learning techniques that we use school-wide. 

In grades K-5, we use Singapore Math for our students. Singapore Math is a method that is very student-centered and focuses on teaching the students to gain a deep understanding of the math concepts.
