Lower School: Pre-K - Class 5

The lower school curriculum in Pre-Kindergarten-Class 5 is a homeroom-based program with a focus on building a strong foundation of skills in learning, study habits, and relationships. From the Early Childhood programs of Pre-K and Kindergarten, to the study of the ancient Greeks in Class 5, Dexter Southfield students learn the fundamentals of traditional academic disciplines and different perspectives so that they can draw on those skills to master material of increasing complexity and to engage in broader topics of the world. 

Relationships are at the core of all we do at Dexter Southfield. Teachers, coaches, and advisors do their best to get to know every child in order to help them develop their unique talents.
