Lower School


Music & Theater

Beginning in the Lower School, Latin's youngest students are introduced to the basic elements of music, such as rhythm, harmony, and melody. Teachers creatively employ learning-by-doing in their classes to teach concepts like tempo, incorporating physical movement, and listening exercises into instruction. Productions include a fall musical, a spring play, the Fourth Grade State Fair, and the annual Grandparents' Day presentation by students in TK–Grade 3.
