School Reviews

  • Recommended February 09, 2014 - Country Day has been an excellent school for our 3 children. Each has a different learning style which their teachers have identified, embraced and nurtured. Development of the whole child is a priority from JK-12. We have been so pleased with this community of caring. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended June 16, 2013 - I am a parent with children in all three divisions, and I believe CCDS provides an outstanding and well rounded education. CCDS is much more rigorous academically than our previous public school and provides greater opportunities in athletics, community service, and art due to the smaller size. The strong, involved faculty and highly motivated students really encourage kids to do their best. My kids have made great friendships as well. I highly recommend CCDS! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 11, 2013 - Fosters academic excellence, strong character development, cultural curiosity in children. Great school-family community. Arts and culture support, athletic support and caring faculty open to new ideas. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 14, 2013 - I am a parent of two Upper School students at CCDS and we have had an amazing experience since coming in Kindergarten (one in JK). I have been very involved in the Parents'' Association so have seen what goes on behind the scenes and can honestly tell you that this school and the administrators, faculty and staff live by their mission and make choices always that are in the best interests of the students. The quality of teaching is top notch, the sports and arts programs are extensive and well run, the college guidance department alone is worth the price of tuition! It''s a caring, family environment and community of adults coming together to nurture and grow our children. I highly recommend this school! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended July 27, 2012 - We have 2 children at CCDS, academically the school is excellent, the teachers are loving and engaged. There is a culture of kindness throughout the school, students and faculty. - Posted by Parent
