In Lower School, students begin to explore, define and communicate their own personal values and beliefs. Beginning in pre-kindergarten, we nurture student voices through the lens of the Lower School’s core values: responsibility, respect, integrity, cooperation, compassion, resilience, and mindfulness. Throughout their time in Lower School, students lead assemblies, serve as reading “buddies” to younger students, and even run the division’s morning car line. Through leadership and public speaking opportunities, students become self-aware, advocate for what they believe, and represent themselves and Bryn Mawr confidently. They are ready to face Middle School with a bold voice and strong sense of self.
