Lower School Curriculum
At Sandy Spring Friends Lower School, we focus on each child’s growth academically, physically, socially, and spiritually.
Our Lower School emphasizes the individual strengths and talents of each child, nurturing a sense of self-worth and confidence to take risks. Our supportive teachers help each student develop mastery of basic skills and concepts with open-ended problem-solving, expansive thinking, and creative writing.
