Lower School
The Lower School consists of all students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 4th. There are two sections of each grade, and between 15 and 20 students in each section. At Greene Street, students learn to think critically, problem-solve, work collaboratively, and function healthily in a learning environment that both nurtures and challenges them.

Our classrooms are vibrant and joyful places for learning in which our teachers seek to know each child as a learner and person, challenge each child to stretch and grow academically and socially, and nurture the natural curiosity and love for learning inherent in our students. We believe that the relationship between teacher and student is the key to unlocking learning, and therefore we keep our classroom size and student-teacher ratio low. Each classroom has a lead teacher and a full or part-time assistant, depending on the age and needs of the group.

Our strong academic program in mathematics, literacy, social studies, science, Spanish, music, art, and physical education is taught in an environment steeped in Quaker values, and differences in race, gender, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic level, sexual orientation, family structure, and more are welcomed and celebrated.
