A Whole Child Focus
The preschool through tweflth grade curriculum at Brownell Talbot is a fully-balanced education that includes academic skills, social interaction, emotional engagement, and physical activity. Research suggests that the more areas of a child’s brain that are engaged, the more likely it is that lessons will be internalized and retained. As such, each day in the Lower School contains a great variety of lessons, activities, and games to help develop well-rounded young people.

Beliefs and Philosophy
BT students may begin their grade school education on campus as early as 3 years old and continue straight through to high school graduation. Friendships often become lifelong, allowing our students to interact as a large extended family within our community, and such is our commitment to them.

Our teachers are passionate about enabling each child to make significant personal growth through best practices in teaching and learning. This includes an intentional approach to social-emotional development, providing a well-planned environment, and a strong home-to-school connection.

For families with demanding schedules that require additional care, we are proud to offer a licensed extended care program to our Lower and Middle School students. This allows your child to be dropped off as early as 7:00am and picked up as late as 6:00pm. Furthermore, these programs help round out your son or daughter’s school day with additional fun and engaging activities outside of the day’s curriculum.
