About The Country School
The Country School is an independent, coeducational, Kindergarten through eighth-grade school founded in 1934 that embodies its motto, “The way school should be!” Its mission and philosophy is to offer a challenging program in a nurturing environment with small classes, individual attention, and outstanding teachers as its hallmarks. A traditional, structured, responsive, and age-appropriate curriculum focuses on building basic skills and serves a range of student abilities within a family school context. The school strives to educate the whole child in an atmosphere that fosters high academic standards, instills a love of learning, and provides a solid foundation for future education. Enrichment in the arts, athletics, and co-curricular activities offers additional arenas for individual achievement and leadership. By emphasizing the importance of strong values and character, the faculty consistently reinforces responsible behavior, self-discipline, and positive attitudes. Working in concert, The Country School teachers and parents help students develop confidence and competence and reach toward their highest potential.
