A wonderful place with a true focus on nurturing creativity and intellectual curiosity. The no homework policy creates a much greater focus on teaching IN the classroom.

Submitted by a parent · June 05, 2015

About this school

Welcome to the Country School, a progressive PS-8 independent school where we believe our kids can do anything. Each child is a unique, fully contained human being, and our job is to help that individual grow into the fullest and best version of herself or himself possible. Every day is packed full of potential, and we are here to realize it. We call it the Country School Way - recognizing each moment for the opportunity it contains, and embracing it with enthusiasm, creativity and confidence.
