Lower School Schedule 2017-18

What does a typical day in the Lower School at Delaware Valley Friends look like?

The lower school school schedule is designed to provide significant instructional time in areas that are critical to setting the foundation for future academic success.

Skill remediation and development in the areas of language arts, math and reading comprise the majority of a students' morning.

There is time allotted for a robust specials program that will include art, music, technology and PE. Students also receive instruction in social studies and science throughout the year.

In addition, the schedule allows for dedicated daily instruction in character development and age appropriate social emotional learning.
