Meet Amy Vorenberg, Head of Lower School

I am inspired each day by students' curiosity and confidence, pride in their school, and joy in being King students.

I have dedicated my career to working with young learners in independent schools. Plato said, “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” As I collaborate with teachers, parents, and administrators, we are guided by a respect for childhood and by our shared belief that the foundation established in strong, early childhood and elementary classrooms helps provide a base for successes of all kinds.

Lower School children thrive when they are known for their individual passions and strengths, in classrooms where they feel safe and valued. King’s classrooms skillfully blend engaging intellectual inquiry with kindness and compassion. We believe in children. We see every child as smart, capable, and ready to learn. We know that all children have preferences and interests, questions and opinions. They are naturally curious about the world around them and seek answers from not only their teachers and friends, but also from the environment around them. For that reason, we work intentionally to build extraordinary learning communities that value the voices of each child.

Head of Lower School

“We believe that curiosity is a natural ability that children bring to their learning – we encourage students to ask questions, make discoveries, think critically, analyze and solve problems, be good listeners, and have fun being involved in the dynamic process of learning. We value every child and build strong, safe classroom communities where exploration and discovery leads to mastery. ”

— Dr. Sandy Lizaire-Duff, Head of Lower School
