School Reviews

  • Recommended October 29, 2013 - My son has been at Countryside for almost 3 years now and I couldn''t be more pleased. He has had a top rate education and is performing well above his grade level. Although Countryside is going through some major changes right now with the loss of the Head of School, I trust that the teachers and staff will carry on with the top notch curriculum that they have provided so far. My son fits in really well at this school and has experienced nothing but respect despite the fact that he is biracial and has other social circumstances that might lead to discrimination. He is well loved by students, families and teachers. Couldn''t recommend this school higher. - Posted by Parent
