Almaden Country Day School Reviews

The teachers and faculty not only really care about their student's education, but also their well being. They try to bring out academically the best in everyone through different learning styles, collaboration, and hands-on projects. They also try to build character in their students and are very good at proactively dealing with social issues like bullying so that it stops immediately and doesn't escalate. Of course, every school unfortunately isn't a perfect paradise where everyone never says a mean thing ever about another person ever, but as far as middle school goes, ACDS is pretty good. I had a great time there, and I'm sure you and/or your kids will have fun too. After ACDS, I got accepted into all of the private high schools I applied to because they have a good highschool-readiness focus, and I chose Bellarmine College Preparatory.

What a gem of a school! This is our 7th year at ACDS and my kids are absolutely thriving! Excellent Head of School and terrific teachers. Very strong, hands-on curriculum that has kept my kids engaged and fostered their love of learning. The school's focus on a "low-stress, high opportunity" environment has been instrumental in fostering their confidence. I have many friends with ACDS graduates and the theme is the same-- ACDS students were well-prepared for high school, and life! The wonderful community of parents and students is the icing on the cake!
We love Almaden Country Day School. Our oldest daughter graduated from ACDS last year and was completely prepared for high school. At ACDS, her love of learning was nurtured, she was offered many wonderful enrichment classes and she was taught how to speak confidently. Our youngest daughter is in 5th grade and is inspired by amazing teachers, offered opportunities to try new things in a safe environment and supported by a wonderful community. Great school!
