Welcome to Lower School

Every day is an adventure designed to ignite the power of imagination that promotes growth. Our Lower School classrooms buzz with inquisitive minds surrounded by support and opportunity to help them truly flourish.

The habits and values developed in early years become foundational successes for students, giving them the confidence to know that anything is possible.

Fort Worth Country Day’s Lower School, Junior Kindergarten (JK) through elementary school grade 4, is an inspiring and joyful place full of opportunities for learning and growth. Embraced in a nurturing, safe and serene environment, students are immersed in dynamic academics and exceptional character development.

Children learn best when experiences are engaging and authentic. FWCD teachers know each student and craft instruction that is challenging, yet appropriate, for every learner.
