Welcome to The Country School! As you travel through this website, I hope you are able to feel the vitality and energy that characterize life on our campus. We are truly a dynamic learning community, a place where every community member – whether age 3 or age 63 – has a voice and every person makes a difference.
Our academic program is rigorous in content and pace, and we inspire students in PreSchool-Grade 8 to reach their highest in all they do. At the same time, we are a community that values childhood, and here at The Country School, to be at school is to have fun.
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:
As we honor the creativity, sense of wonder, and exuberance in childhood, we hope to stir in our students enthusiasm for learning as an exciting, lifelong activity.
Time and again, our alumni tell us we are successful in that mission. Please visit us and see for yourself.
With best wishes,
John D. Fixx, Head of School
