    Cincinnati Country Day School Reviews

    We couldn't have been happier with the education our daughter received. No doubt the best faculty, most with advanced degrees, and more importantly open doors do their offices with small class sizes. Credit the administration for their strategic planning for the future, as the school and faculty worked seamlessly in the transition to online learning this Spring. Students are most prepared for the digital age as tablets are mandatory. The Athletic Department hired a new AD last Summer and he has given new life to an already successful program! In that same time frame the new Leonard Athletic Center officially opened. With a swimming pool for competitions,a new gym ,another gym dedicated to gymnastics, new locker rooms & state of the art equipment, student athletes are well prepared for their seasons .The 62 acre campus is a beautiful environment for students 18 months to 18 years. CCDS was my daughter's home away from home and a place she will visit often in the future. COMMUNITY

    Cincinnati Country Day School is a very prestigious, college preparatory school in Indian Hill, Ohio. What makes this school so special is that they start us on our college path our freshman year. CCDS introduced us to technology in the 5th grade where we got our first computers and they did such a good job with teaching us how to write essays, and how to navigate through our advancing technological world. Since the is small I was able to develop close relationships with my teachers, coaches, and students. CCDS has 5 character virtues; respect, responsibility, courage, compassion, and integrity. They taught me so much more than just academics. They also created a safe environment for everyone and they preach on the word diversity!
    Will start off by saying I am a black parent. Knowing that these reviews typically may not reflect the experiences of parents of color, I figured I'd write one.

    I have been extremely impressed with the new direction of CCDS. Angela, who is in the lower school and also heads the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the school has done tremendous and incredible work. The school recently, after input of several parents, removed the "indian" mascot. There is an incredible new energy of more progressive parents and I've been incredibly happy there for my daughter. Her class is, surprisingly, very diverse. More than the high performing public school in our district and the other privates. I would strongly recommend taking a tour to get a feel. The facilities are incredible and the teachers are fantastic and extremely personable. My daughter loves this school (she is in the lower school).
