About Our Lower School Program 


Lower School is Nature School’s private elementary school, offering grades K-4th for the 2021-2022 school year. NC state standards are met through a progressive, integrated and experiential curriculum that covers all academic subjects while nurturing the unique skills and abilities of each student and providing time for them to learn at their own pace. Our approach is rooted in daily nature immersion, capturing students’ inborn curiosity about the natural world to foster deep connections to God, nature and each other. Lower School will have access to an indoor space but class will take place predominantly outside. Click on the icons below to access more information on Lower School.
