Map of Detroit Country Day Lower School address.

We are very disappointed in the direction the lower school is taking academically. Detroit Country Day Lower School offered a rigorous academic program as compared to the area public schools. Not so from our experience. For what we are paying for our children, we can go to our public school and get the same education for our children for free.

The new director is wonderful! Mrs. Bullock is always available to sit down and talk. We are thrilled with our child being in Mrs. Del Pizzo's class this year. She is simply the best second grade teacher at DCDS.

As a parent of a child who has been through the entire lower school preK3 through 2nd grade I can honestly say it has not been worth the $140,000 plus. The teachers are not consistenly good and there are definately some weak links. The smaller class sizes are nice but they test the kids at the beginning of the year and group them in math and reading groups. Even if your child surpasses the others in his/her group there is no chance for upward movement. My child did not meet her full potential and I felt they 'dumbed her down.'

Absolutely fabulous preschool facilty. Children are challenged academically in a fun supportive environment. Instruction goes beyond the basics and enriches the child artistically, musically and athletically. Parent participation is high. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.
