Welcome to The Donoho Lower School


At The Donoho Lower School, a creative and dedicated group of educators partner with parents and students to create a challenging and loving learning community for children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through six.

At each grade level, our program places a high value on academic achievement while recognizing the developmental needs of children. Our littlest Falcons are introduced to school life through meaningful play that explores art, music, science, math, and social studies and includes trips to the playground and the library.  In primary and intermediate grades, our core curriculum includes math, science, reading, grammar, history, foreign language, music, art and physical education.  At every level, we strive to provide our students a safe, nurturing environment that cultivates a love of learning, challenges students to stretch themselves, and encourages initiative, integrity, and creativity.

While our website is a great place to learn about our school, we would love to have you visit campus to experience the Lower School for yourself.  I’ll look forward to an opportunity to introduce you to The Donoho School!

Once a Falcon,
Always a Falcon!
