Fort Worth Country Day offers so much. In my opinion, it is the best private school in Texas. Great classes, fine arts, and most of all people.

By far, the best education in Fort Worth. For the money, perhaps the best education in the nation. Well rounded programs, great teachers, and more national merit scholars than any school (no other school in Fort worth is close). A real emphasis on developmental skills, not only academically, but also socially and giving back to the community.

FWCD is very slow to change. There are some excellent teachers but many more that should have retired long ago. The leadership is more concerned with imaging than it is with improving education and meeting the needs of its students. It has been a true disappointment.

Country Day has provided an amazing education for both of my children. The teachers give so much individual care to each student and the ratio of student to teacher is about 1:7 it is extremely difficult but is worth it in the college run, when kids reach college after attending the upperschool they are more than prepared for the work load ahead of them.

Forth Worth Country Day School has been a blessing to our family. It starts with a wonderful campus with lots of history built in 1962. The teachers are top notch in their education field and encourage our children to learn at an advanced level in a peaceful enviroment. We have three girls attending FWCDS. This will be our eighth year and feel that FWCDS has exceeded in our expectations to prepare our children for college and life beyond.

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.
