Lower / Middle School

In the lower grades, main lesson blocks are taught for periods of four to six weeks. This content permeates most classroom activities, from reading and math to painting, music, baking, and gardening. In the lower grades, an environment of respect for each other is established by turn-taking, sharing resources, and helping one another.  

In the middle grades, students explore the world in a new way that is supported by a curriculum that includes botany, chemistry, physics, geography, history, language arts, and geometry.  

Students in the elementary and middle grades are active participants in the rich social and festival life of The Camphill School community. Birthdays and special occasions are celebrated in houses and classrooms. They also enjoy trips to museums, concerts, plays, and movies to enrich academic programming.
