Our Philosophy

We’re delighted to welcome you to Manlius Pebble Hill’s Lower School!

We are passionate about explicit instruction that is systematic, direct, and engaging so that each child has equitable access to skills that allow them to grow into stronger readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, historians, and friends. We strive to facilitate the development of our youngest learners with a sense of perspective and, from that, empathy. We are committed to creating a culture of belonging and creativity that promotes independence, reliance, and risk-taking. From the classrooms to the playgrounds and forts, we are all learners together, sharing in a journey of growth and discovery.

We don’t just teach content to students; we inspire academic ambition by ensuring that students love, and know how, to learn.

We invite you to visit the MPH Lower School with your family. We hope you’ll love it here as much as we do.
