Parents Are Partners

At The Country School, parents are partners in the education of their children. We encourage dialogue between home and school and invite parents to become involved in the life of the school.
Parents have always held an important role at The Country School. Founded six decades ago by parents who wished to see their children reach their full potential, the school continues to rely on parent volunteers to help carry out our mission. Parents serve on the Board of Trustees, as members and leaders of the Parent Teacher Association, and as Room Parents. They help teachers with classroom activities and visit classrooms to share professional and personal expertise. They serve on committees, lead tours during Admission visits, and volunteer at special events such as Grandparents and Special Friends' Day.

Parent Teacher Association

The mission of the Parent Teacher Association is to support The Country School through community building in order to enrich the TCS experience for our children. Each year, the Parent Teacher Association organizes and hosts events which further our community and provide avenues for families to build upon relationships and support educational experiences and directives of The Country School.

Previously called the Parent Association, the "T" for Teacher was added before the start of 2013-2014 school year on the notion that it is the concerted efforts of parents AND teachers that create the best learning environment for Country School students. The Parent Teacher Association works hard to support our teachers and to foster a collegial and congenial community for all. We all benefit when we enrich student experiences!

Parenting Series

As a community dedicated to teaching and learning, we are delighted to be able to offer educational opportunities to all of our constituents — students, teachers, and parents — as well as to the broader community. Throughout the year, we invite the public to join us for events on subjects related to education and parenting.
