Fostering a culture of respect, high expectations, and shared experiences, The Calverton School instills in students intellectual curiosity, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic to prepare them for higher education and responsible citizenship in a democratic and global community.

The Calverton Lower School provides a challenging and nurturing environment for young children to learn and grow in Preschool through Fifth Grade. Through exploration and discovery of grade-appropriate topics, students are given opportunities for creative, critical, and independent thought and expression. In recognition of the various developmental differences in children, learning is based on the active involvement of the students in individual and cooperative activities that are both teacher-directed and student-initiated. The Lower School community—including teacher, student, and family—focuses on the total development of the child in a values-oriented setting, where each child is encouraged to practice and value such personal qualities as honesty, trust, and mutual respect. The Lower School recognizes the importance of a working partnership between the School and home, which reinforces the value of the child as an individual and as a member of the Calverton community.

The academic program in the Lower School is built on a strong comprehensive curriculum. It includes language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, music, technology, library, physical education, environmental education, art, and foreign language.
