School Reviews

My son and daughter both graduated from Harbor Day School. They felt extremely well prepared for high school, both academically and socially. The teachers at Harbor Day are skilled and caring, and my children have never since had teachers that they liked as much as their Harbor Day School teachers. The school also has character education and community service programs and teaches three languages.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
