The Lamplighter School educational program in Lower School promotes academic excellence through an innovative curriculum that nurtures and cultivates the potential of each child. It provides opportunities for children to explore their world in a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment, where they can touch, examine, feel, manipulate, pick up, and poke everything around them. Children construct an understanding of their world by formulating hypotheses, generating plans, and shaping their own conclusions.
As you are discovering, Lamplighter does not merely fill students’ heads with facts but teaches students how to question, find information, and think critically. Students are confident and respect differences of opinion. Lamplighter values integrated thinking. The school’s program helps students make connections between ideas, connect their ideas with the real world, and understand those connections through personal experiences.
