Welcome to the world of exciting labs and unfolding experiments. Ashley Hall's Lower School science instruction happens in the classroom, in the "field" and in the laboratory with assistance from the Lower School science specialist. Discovery is project-based, allowing students to work on collaborative explorations which cultivate specific science competencies and nurture a child's sense of wonder. Lower School science curriculum places particular emphasis on learning about the environment and ecosystems of the Lowcountry.
Ashley Hall uses the Everyday Math program in kindergarten through fourth grade. Widely endorsed by schools throughout the country, this program engages students with hands-on activities as well as direct instruction in basic math facts. We have found that this math program fosters higher-order critical thinking skills and helps students fully engage with progressively more complex mathematical concepts and applications. Our girls learn math at a pace appropriate for them, appreciate how manipulating and understanding numbers is an integral part of so many other aspects of learning and life.
