Shore Country Day School
Shore Country Day School provides its students with an academically challenging education in an environment which inspires a love of learning, nurtures self-confidence, and encourages personal achievement. Shore's dynamic PK-9 curriculum melds traditional skills with integrated learning, discussion-based styles, big concept inquiry, individual focus, and hands-on explorations in the Innovation Lab for all ages.
Our Community Code articulates personal expectations for everyone in the school community. Faculty members are committed to teaching students to become critical thinkers who possess self-confidence and personal integrity.
We encourage them to find strength in diversity, appreciate differences of opinion, and recognize the necessity for mutual respect among all individuals. Attracting 425 capable and motivated students seeking challenge in their academic experience and the complement of robust arts and athletics, families commute or bus to Shore from across the North Shore.
Shore's superb facilities are conveniently located on 17 acres, 1 minute from Rt.
128, in Beverly. Special features include Shore's Center for Creativity with its studios, practice rooms, kiln room, Innovation Lab, gallery space, and state-of-the-art 375 seat theater.
Five-day/week PE classes, 2 gyms, 6 fields and excellent interscholastic teams emphasize physical health, sports and team work.
Under faculty mentors, middle school students initiate Independent Studies for the exploration of developing passions.
Clubs and Math Team expand interests.
Day and overnight field trips energize classroom learning, and service projects and the social "house" system engage the full community in activity and weekly meetings.
