Academically progressive, creative and challenging. Keeps childhood light and happy for as long as possible.

We are entering our fifth year at the Country School and couldn't be happier. Our daughter is flourishing, and her outgoing nature is celebrated and channeled into leadership opportunities, rather than being dampened by in-the-box thinking. TCS is a place that tailors the education experience to each child's needs, resulting in proactive, creative, flexible thinkers who see the world as a place to explore and improve. I wish every child could have a TCS education.

TCS is so much more than a school to us - it is a family. It is a nurturing place where children are safe to express themselves. The academics are top notch. We are in our 9th year there and the amazing teachers and staff have taken my children from pre-school to middle school. They intimately understand my children's strengths and weaknesses and they work with us to help them reach their full potential. They nurture great students and great human beings. They don't just talk about diversity, they embody it.

You would think it would be easier to get your child into an elementary or primary school than into a prep school. But in fact it is almost as complicated.

If you have the chance to move overseas, don't worry about educating your children. You have several options.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
