Model Facility and a Record to Make Us Proud
Our new state-of-the-art athletic facilities are the latest demonstration of the pride The Country School takes in fielding among the most competitive sports teams in New England for a school of its size.
We produce student-athletes who go on to compete at the varsity level in some of the top high school and collegiate programs across the country. In fact, since 2010, an average of five Country School alumni athletes per graduating class have gone on to compete at top NCAA Division I, II, and III schools, including Amherst, Boston College, Columbia, Middlebury, MIT, Northwestern, Stanford, UCONN, University of Rhode Island, and Villanova.
Over the years we have won tournaments in soccer and basketball as well as cross country state and regional championships, with several of our runners – some as young as age 6 – qualifying to compete at the national level.
Rothberg Tennis Center, an incredible new facility that provides unlimited court time on its four, state-of-the-art courts. Coupled with outstanding coaching and our legendary commitment to sportsmanship, the Rothberg Tennis Center will make The Country School tennis program the program for elite middle school tennis players.

DeFrancis Gymnasium. Indoor athletic events take place inside DeFrancis Gymnasium. Named for the school's first teacher, Katherine DeFrancis, DeFrancis Gymnasium is a multi-purpose space where we hold basketball games and practices, Physical Education classes, and club and intramural athletic events. The DeFrancis Gymnasium is also equipped with an indoor climbing wall.
Ropes Course. The Country School is fortunate to have its own 12-station ropes course located in the woods flanking our 23-acre campus. Students of all ages engage in team-building challenges on the ropes course throughout the year.
Cross Country Trail. In 2014, coaches, athletes, and parents of Country School runners joined forces to create an on-campus cross country course. The school held its first home cross country meet that year, and athletes of all ages routinely run through our trails in the woods.
