Lower School

As an independent Catholic school, we are inspired by the dedication of our founders, the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, to education and service.

Boys and girls in Nardin’s Lower School, made up of Grades K – 4, are encouraged to maximize their own individual potential by seeking out meaningful learning experiences, engage themselves both locally and globally, and become leaders in our Nardin community and beyond.

Outside of the limitation of New York State standarized tests, our educators and professional support staff have the flexibility to execute creative lessons and work collaboratively in order to provide developmentally appropriate instruction for our students. Through a well-rounded approach of skills practice, service, and project-based learning, students are challenged in a curriculum that includes English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, religion, technology, world language, dance, physical education, and the arts.

Our program in the Lower School not only focuses on academics, but on our students’ social-emotional growth as well. Our full-time guidance counselor often takes part in our elementary classes promoting character education lessons such as kindness, team building, friendship, digital citizenship, and mindfulness.

Regardless of a child’s passion or interests, Nardin offers amazing things for every student. We encourage you to come in and learn more about our program. Schedule a tour, shadow day, or a meeting with some of our administrative and teaching staff. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
