    This school has been more than I hoped for and my expectations were pretty high coming from an outstanding school. They offer numerous opportunities to get to know other members of the community from a parent standpoint and everyone has been very welcoming. My kids are thrilled and thriving. They love the teachers, and have many avenues in which to participate. They can't wait to get to school! It has easily been the highlight of our move.

    I am an alumnus, faculty member, and future parent of Cincinnati Country Day School, and I couldn't possibly rate the institution more highly. The rich academic and cultural environment that attracted my family to CCDS a quarter century ago is thriving, and is precisely what brought me back for my professional career. CCDS offers a progressive, engaging curriculum, a culturally diverse student body and faculty, and a warm learning environment which encourages curiosity and exploration. Country Day was the nation's first one-to-one school, and over twenty years later, the experience and innovation shows. Technology is never present just for technology's sake, rather it's carefully interwoven into nearly every aspect of classroom and extracurricular life. Faculty pride themselves on taking a personal interest in students' individual successes, and the broader school community is a vibrant one which rallies together for events big and small.
    The Cincinnati Country Day School does an exceptional job of preparing students for college and life. It is a nurturing environment with caring teachers and a well-rounded student body.
    Extracurricular activities are held in high regard at CCDS, and the college counseling office takes the time to ensure that there is a personalized college application process for each student.
    I came to CCDS in 9th grade and have loved my experience; it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
