School Reviews

5.0  7/24/2015
Our child is in her eighth year at Country Day. We are so proud of the student she is, and the woman she is becoming. Her interest in learning, confidence in tackling challenging subjects and persistence to the end is a testament to the teaching and encouragement she has received from her devoted teachers in the classroom, in the Arts and on the athletic fields. We are confident she will be prepared for her future with her life at LCDS as a stronghold.
