Great school but not for everyone. Been involved with this school for 17 years and seen many changes, some better than others. Of late, vision seems more about marketing and optics.

All 4 of our children are unique learners, and one has learning differences. Country Day addresses all their individual needs. Facilities are the best in the city. Gorgeous learning environment dedicated to educating the whole child. Sending our children here has been the single most important thing we`ve done for them. The faculty is like our extended family, and the investment is worth it!

100% of Country Day's students continue on to college after graduation. The music, arts, sports and extracurricular activities are outstanding and plentiful. The academics are rigorous but do-able. The term college prep really does describes Fort Worth Country Day. One of the best aspects of FWCD is the sense of community however. Teachers and students create a almost a family and a caring environment that fosters learning.
