Building a Foundation of Success:

The Lower School at Ashley Hall features a vibrant elementary education program and includes kindergarten through sixth grade. The Lower School provides a nurturing environment where girls establish a strong foundation for rigorous and meaningful study and where there is a firm belief that self-advocacy and the building of self-esteem are critical to long-term academic success.

Our integrated curriculum is taught by experienced faculty who know how girls think, feel, and learn. Daily leadership opportunities give our girls the tools and self-confidence they need to successfully navigate the Intermediate and Upper School years.

Ashley Hall is an independent private school for girls, serving kindergarten through twelfth grade students, with a coeducational preschool in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Lower School nurtures students who are inquisitive, engaged, and on-the-go! Highlights include the following:

  • The Lower School offers a dedicated science laboratory with weekly hands-on instruction and field trips held throughout the year.
  • A full-time guidance counselor serves on the faculty and offers individualized attention to the physical and emotional needs of each girl.
  • Encouraging young female engineers, the Lower School features their own Lego team. Lego activities introduce students to real-world engineering challenges by having them build Lego-based robots that are coded to complete specified tasks.
  • Everyday Math is a key component of our curriculum. Developed by The University of Chicago, Everyday Math emphasizes the application of math to real world situations.
  • The Lower School literacy program uses the Units of Study, developed at the Teacher’s College at Columbia University, to foster a love of the written word and support students as they become independent, confident readers and writers.
  • Every kindergartener takes violin or cello, and all students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of music lessons, including strings, piano, and guitar.
