Elementary school develops the necessary learning habits essential for achievement in the succeeding years of education. Between K5 and fifth grades, a student will experience significant growth emotionally, physically and intellectually. At Episcopal Day School, we believe that a strong foundation in the basic academic areas coupled with the creativity of the fine arts will equip our students with the necessary tools for learning.
