    Carrollwood Day School is an excellent school with a top level education that includes outstanding caring teachers, a challenging IB program, balanced activities and academics, and a strong influence on caring for others. My daughter is in 7th grade and started there in fifth grade, it is the best school she has been in during her entire education. The teachers will challenge the student while offering support and encouragement! The program is well rounded and my daughter is able to excel there while managing training for competitive tennis after school five days a week! Homework is balanced and being well rounded while academically successful is completely possible! The administration is wonderful and communicate with parents easily! My daughter loves her education and will be above and beyond prepared for college in a few years!

    I received the best education the world has to offer. International Baccalaureate challenged me to no end. The staff there at Carrollwood Day School were supportive, nurturing and they pushed me when I got discouraged. I have no regrets and I am confidently ready for the next level!
    I told my 1st grade son the other day to "Hand me the remote." My son replied back "Dad, you should say please." He said it with kindness and wanted to make sure I was being kind in turn. I was so proud of him. We've told him that he needs to address things that are not right and to stand up for himself and for others when he sees other people doing wrong and that is being reinforced with him at CDS. We are new this year at CDS. We are very happy to be a part of the Patriot Family!
