The Lower School Experience

The CCES Lower School emphasizes academic excellence and unique learning opportunities in interactive, child-centered classrooms. The independent private elementary school serves students in Primer (K) and grades 1 through 4, providing an educational experience unlike any other in the Greenville, SC area.

In the Lower School, the CCES experience begins with the nurturing relationship teachers form with every child. There is a feeling of physical and emotional safety that pervades the school and allows children to blossom. Students gain necessary foundational skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Through inquiry-based learning children also learn that their questions and interests are valued, and integrated instruction across a broad range of 
subject areas encourages students to explore their creativity and expand their intellectual pursuits. Throughout the Lower School experience, opportunities to develop and enhance personal and social characteristics like leadership, collaboration, independence, poise, and curiosity abound.
