Wonderful school and environment. Challenging academics and competitive athletics where everyone gets along and enjoys what Country Day has to offer. Small classes give students a chance to succeed while not getting lost in the numbers.

Country Day is a fantastic school. The kids who go here grow up in a close community of friends, and it really feels like a family. The teachers work with the students to help them reach their full potential, and the school works around your child needs. I couldn't recommend a better school than Country Day, because there really isn't one. And there are more than 164 students. In total, i think there are almost 800 students including PK-12
