School Reviews

I went to Country Day K-12 and can honestly say it prepared me so much for the rigor of academics I''m presented with in college. The Teachers were very well-educated and approachable, there was a vast array of clubs and sports to join, and the college counselor is available with advice from your freshman year. Now that I am studying engineering, I feel that I have an advantage to my peers who went to larger, public schools.
