LOWER SCHOOL STUDENT LIFE
In Lower School at Prince of Peace Christian, students develop math and literacy skills. Integrated social studies units at each grade level provide opportunities for students to apply basic skills to learn about topics in depth. Students build an understanding of the scientific process as they explore life, environmental and physical sciences.
Students have special study classes in art, music, physical education, computer, Spanish (K-Grade 5) and time set aside weekly to visit our Lower School Library. Our social, emotional, and faith curriculum helps students understand themselves as learners and sets the stage for collaboration, empathy and self-reliance.
