Lower School

 

Dynamic, Girl-Focused, and Student-Driven

At Hewitt, we understand that teaching is both an art and a science. Great teaching defines what we do in lower school. Our teachers not only think carefully about what we should teach our girls, but they also feel strongly about how we teach our girls. Our faculty members provide each student with a rich learning experience that is dynamic, girl-focused, and student-driven. This does not just benefit our students—it also attracts inquisitive and passionate teachers. While our warm, familial atmosphere endures decade after decade, our curriculum is constantly evolving.

The graduating Class of 2022 will make change, I’m sure of it. And I’m already proud of us for using our voices, passion, and optimism in the service of our home at Hewitt and our homes beyond this one. As we move on to the next steps of our lives, please keep that love, that faith, that agency, that courage, that kindness.
