Lower School



Plato said, "The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life." At The Dunham school, our mission is to provide students with a college preparatory education set in the framework of Christian instruction and example, and that path to higher education begins in PreK.

Our focus is on moving students toward the primary goal, which is the student's future acceptance at the university of his or her choice.  Lower school teachers provide lessons and activities designed to challenge and inspire students to achieve at increasingly high levels in all areas: academically, physically, socially, and spiritually.

Beginning with Mrs. Elva in the Lower School Office and continuing with every teacher, we make every effort to help parents and students feel at home, because the school, in many regards, is their second home! Parents are welcome at lunch, Chapel, class parties, field trips, and other school events.  Our greatest reward is to see our students enter as pre-kindergarteners and exit as graduating seniors, sharing the many, wonderful life events in between ... rejoicing with them and their paretns in the glad times, supporting them in the sometimes difficult times, and praying with them always as we strive daily to live out God's plan in educating their minds and hearts for Christ.
