Shore Country Day School'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 students 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.
