I transferred my son here halfway through kindergarten from a top state public school system (in the next town) where he was being mislabeled and struggling. Within days, he was a new kid. CDS has a traditional curriculum that is time-tested. The community is close-knit and the parents are all heavily invested in all aspects of the school. The curriculum is rigorous and structured and students are expected, and willingly commit to supporting a sense of caring and empathetic spiritual and emotional community at school and beyond. I can't say enough good things about the wonderful and positive changes I have seen in my son during the months since we pulled him from public school. At the end of the day, our son comes home happy. Additionally, choosing Country Day School will open the door for our son's future school choices that would surely have not been an option had we held him back in public school. We wish we didn't waste so much time trying to make him fit into the single-track teaching style he endured in public school. Country Day School is a blessing to our family!

We feel so lucky to have found Country Day. The community is warm and welcoming and families are very involved so we really feel like we are part of our child's school life. The school does a great job at balancing academic rigor with values and fun. The teachers are caring while holding the children to high standards. Music, art, gym, and foreign language are part of the curriculum from the start. Both of us work, so we also appreciate the high quality and affordable after school program! I can't say enough good things about the school - we truly feel part of something special.

We started looking at schools in our area when our daughter was just 3 years old. We decided to start her at CDS after we looked at every school (including public schools) in a 25 mile radius ~ we did our homework! What we wanted for our daughter was the very best and after 2 years at CDS, I can tell you that CDS is the very best. The teachers are dedicated and accomplished in their own right, the small class sizes allow for a lot of individual attention and advanced learning, the character building, self discipline, lessons around respect and community contribution are all life lessons that contribute to developing the mind, body and spirit of our child. The school asks parents to participate in many aspects and parents love it because it creates a very familiar community and the school keeps tuition affordable because the parents are involved and contributing. I am very happy with our choice in schools, we will plan to send our other child to CDS as well. Good things are always happening at the school - check it out.

Being a CDS Family has brought us so many blessings. My son has had so many valuable experiences that will help him throught-out his life in just the first two years at Country Day. As a parent you feel welcomed and enthusistic to be so united in a community and connected to a team of talented teachers who have an amazing staff and the warmest most wonderful Sister to help you give your child a really solid foundation. They help them build good character, and learn about the world around them in a clear and loving manner. The direction that the these young students are guided threw at CDS is one that fills them with compasion, understanding, decilipine, respect and wisdom. It gives me as a Mom a restfull, peaceful feeling knowing my son is using his time at school today in a very clear and valuable manner.

As parents with 2 children enrolled at CDS, we have experienced the highest level of academic excellence. What separates this school from most is the wonderful sense of Family Community. The friends that your child (and you) meet at CDS likely become lifelong friends. The teaching staff is very caring do a wonderful job in reaching your childs inner most potential. Lastly, the respect and consistency in routine teaches my children skills and self diciplinethat will carry them through their lifetime.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
