The Savannah Country Day School

Service Through Knowledge and Character
Academics
Lower School
Welcome to the Lower School! Energy and excitement fill our hallways and classrooms.  Lower School teachers know every child in a personal way.  Our basic curriculum includes a Balanced Literacy approach to reading, problem solving activities with Everyday Math experiences, hands on Science instruction, writing skill instruction across each discipline, and Social Studies experiences.  Classes are taught with developmental expectations in mind, and social skills are integrated into the curriculum every day. Our mission is to teach our children to serve others through knowledge and character development.  Each child here at SCDS is a masterpiece in progress.  Every child is special and has a unique place in our school family.

We are especially proud of our 53,000-square-foot LEED Silver certified building, which provides an excellent hands-on learning environment for our students.  We not only teach our students to be good stewards of the environment but responsible and caring for the larger world.  This commitment is further reflected in two notable accomplishments:  Savannah Country Day was awarded the nation's first Green Flag award by the National Wildlife Federation and was recently recognized as a Green Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
