We have all 3 of our kids at Mendham Country Day School (MCDS). We are pleased with the level of academic focus and socialization that the kids are getting. My kids are definitely challenged with their school work. While they enjoy their class time they look forward to their playtime in aftercare. They are exposed to a variety of art and culture. MCDS has become our home away from home. I am thankful that my kids have a school where they are comfortable, safe and enjoy being.

The best kept secret in New Jersey! Mendham Country Day School offers an amazing education experience to all students. The academic program allows students to work at a level based on their ability and not be held back due to their age. I would recommend this school to everyone who is looking to have their child excel and succeed.

The academic program at Mendham Country Day School is amazing. The students are constantly challenged and taught based on ability not age, allowing for students to work two to three years above grade level. The extracurricular activities offered are overwhelming. The after school program is like no other. A truly amazing school!!
