Bonita Country Day is a fabulous school. The academic programs are well taught by the teachers in the classes to the children. The facility is always kept clean and the staff and the teachers are all wonderful. They also provide the students with music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities . However, the most important attribute is that the principal, staff and teachers are all attentive to the prarents concerns in regards to the needs of their children. And this one of the many qualities that Bonita Country Day provides and I as a parent highly recommend this school.
