Elementary School (K5 - 4th)

At the heart of our Lower School program, is a Biblical worldview curriculum that prepares students to excel academically and spiritually.
Often times, education and the Bible are taught in silos, with the occasional intersection. But at Hartfield, our goal is to integrate Scripture throughout all of our subject areas. Whether students are learning about the Earth’s orbit or the history of America, we teach our students to find God’s big picture throughout their learning.

Our curriculum is rigorous and students who leave our Lower School program are prepared for success in our Middle and High School. Evidence of this is seen in our Lower School students’ Star Reading and Star Math scores, which far surpass age level requirements.

We believe every student has a God-given purpose and we are grateful for the opportunity to walk with you and your child as they discover how they will fulfill it. That’s why teachers at Hartfield are committed to excellence in the classroom, nurturing your child’s strength and weaknesses, and encourage them as they grow academically, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

Academic Life

Lower School students experience a foundation of reading, mathematics, social studies, science, grammar and writing. Our children receive traditional instruction time along with a variety of learning strategies and activities that engage and excite their curiosity.
In addition to their core academics, our students have a variety of enrichment opportunities throughout the week which include, library, music, art, technology and physical education.

We can't forget about food and fun! Snack time, lunch time, and recess are all important activities at Hartfield and something students look forward to everyday. Students are allowed to bring a snack each day to have during the morning while their teacher reads aloud with them each day. Lunch time is lively time of enjoying food from home or the cafeteria while being allowed to visit with their friends. For recess, students have free time on our wonderful playground where they have access to a variety of activities that allow them the time to have fun and build friendships.
