Parents are considered partners in their children’s education at The Country Day School. The school is a community in which parents, teachers, and students work together toward common goals. Through fall and spring conferences, written reports and school work sent home, newsletters, and meetings, parents can keep in close touch.
Parents are able to have frequent contact with their children’s teachers. Once the school routine is established in the fall, parents are welcome to visit the campus and observe the classrooms and by participating in student activities with their children.
Parents aren’t considered outsiders. In fact, parents have had a phenomenal impact on the school and are considered one of The Country Day School’s greatest resource groups. Every parent can feel free to choose a level of involvement. They may become involved in the school community in a number of ways: taking part in classroom activities, participating on field trips, planning or attending school celebrations and events, or sharing a particular field of expertise from gardening to computers.
We will be happy to refer prospective parents to parents of students presently at The Country Day School for references. Many of these parents are educators themselves, and will share with you their level of satisfaction with The Country Day School, as well as the reasons why they chose us as the school for their children.
