Alexandria Country Day School Reviews

3 reviews
I was a student at ACDS for 9 years. I feel as though my experience at ACDS got worse and worse over the years. In lower school (K-5), the teachers were very nurturing and kind, while also teaching me values of respect and the golden rule. However, when I was at ACDS there was a very high teacher turnover rate so I constantly had new teachers with different teaching styles which was hard to adapt to. In middle school (6-8), the administration was very subpar. I was constantly bullied by my male peers, which all of my teachers knew about, but the issue was never resolved until late May of my 8th grade year. In addition, the academics were poor to say the least. Finally, the discipline was very arbitrary and you could get in trouble for most trivial things.

Our daughter has been at ACDS since kindergarten and it's been a pleasure to watch her grow and flourish in their wonderful environment. The faculty and staff are excellent partners in this journey and have supported her (and us) at each transition along the way. One of the big "selling" points for us was the "Speeches & Sweets" program, which has gently walked our shy child along the path to become a confident and comfortable public speaker.
ACDS is an excellent school that focuses on building character in its students while providing the highest quality of education. My son has exposure to technology tools while also learning through play-based educational experiences. I would highly recommend ACDS.
