中学 is a wonderful bridge between the Lower and Upper Divisions, with faculty and staff who nurture and challenge students during this unique stage of their development. 我们鼓励学生在学术上冒险, 诚信行事, and provide them with a safe environment in which to explore their individual strengths.
Our teachers are well-trained to meet the needs of students of varying learning styles and to help them to reach their greatest potential. Our low student-teacher ratio ensures quality communication and individual attention for each student. 我们以了解每个学生而自豪, and giving students guidance and encouragement to achieve their personal best.
作为他们所有学习经历的基础, the School’s Honor System maintains a high level of expectations for academic integrity and character. Our belief is that continued intellectual growth and strength of character correlate with lifelong success - that belief is backed by research. Faculty and staff work daily to connect the two inside and outside the classroom.
Country Day students and faculty regularly measure success through the Mission Skills Assessment (MSI), a scientifically based assessment of six character skills: teamwork, 创造力, 道德, 弹性, 好奇心, 时间管理. 基于这些测量, 课程, 活动, and programs are adjusted to better prepare students for life after 中学.
An understanding of the role technology plays in our interconnected and information-rich world is also essential for children to not only grasp but utilize. Our modern classrooms foster opportunities for students to work independently and cooperatively, 以及跨学科, 最大化他们的学习潜力. The 科学 laboratories support creative problem solving, and provide the room necessary for innovative 课程 planning.
