Our Philosophy

Honoring Our Community Traditions & Values

Country School students are talented, ambitious, and hard-working, and yet they are allowed to be children. This line from our mission statement perhaps says it best: “The Country School honors our students' creativity, sense of wonder, and intellectual curiosity.”
