Lower School Library

Eleanor Duncan Sarratt Memorial Library

The Library is the hub of the Lower School, offering students, teachers, and parents a variety of specialized resources. The Collaboratory (our S.T.E.A.M.-based lab) offers daily hands-on activities that develop problem-solving skills and higher-level thinking skills.

While technological advances dictate an educational emphasis on learning and sharing information using technology, we understand that Lower School students must be introduced to these practices differently than their older counterparts. Students are introduced to different technologies beginning in Montessori through Form 5.

SMH Lower School Literary Festival
Goes Virtual!
March 29 – April 9

Every year, during Grand Day at Saint Mary’s Hall, our grandparents enjoy buying books for their grandchildren at the Lower School Spring Book Fair.  This year, the Literary Festival is still taking place, but with a small twist.  The festival will take the form of a Read-A-Thon from March 29-April 9.  Ask your grandchildren how you can support them in their love of reading.
