Allen Academy’s Lower School encompasses students in grades Kindergarten through 5th. The accelerated academic program integrates curricula that focuses upon the foundational skills necessary for continuous intellectual growth and success. Language arts, reading, social studies, mathematics, and science are core subjects. Lower School students are also instructed in music, art, Spanish, computer education, and participate in Physical Education classes each day.
The lower elementary (K-1) classrooms are self-contained, which provide for the nurturing element so greatly needed at this level. In grades 2-5, there is more departmentalization of the course load, which prepares students for success at this level and future success in Middle School. Choir, student government, band, and other extra-curricular offerings are provided at the upper elementary level as well as numerous clubs.
