    My experience was very positive, and I felt that the Upper School really prepared me for college. The transition of going into University of Michigan after graduation felt like I was still in high school, since the progression was very natural. I believe that without the help of the Upper School's rigorous academics and extracurriculars requirement, I would not have had the study and note taking skills and time management skills necessary to be in the top 10% of the College of Engineering, even as a junior.

    I spent 12 years at DCD and it is impossible to think of all the ways the school helped me become the person I am today. Country Day taught me more than just what you learn in class. I was constantly learning. In the classroom with teachers who genuinely cared about our well-being and success. On the field with coaches who pushed us to give our best effort. In the hallways with friends who understood just how lucky we were to be there.
    Country Day did everything it set out to do for me, and I couldn't be more grateful.The demanding workload helped me understand how to not only balance studies, sports, clubs, and a social life, but thrive while doing so.
    I'll always love everything about my school!
    I have attended Detroit Country Day since the fifth grade, and wow! What an experience it has been. There have been a lot of ups and downs, but more ups than downs. The teachers provide constant knowledge and support, it's hard to do poorly. I've felt welcome and at home since I enrolled at DCD. I have gained and lost friends along the way, but the social and educational challenges will prepare for college with no troubles at all. I would be fibbing if I said I wouldn't miss DCD after graduation. It's been a life changing experience and I am forever thankful to have attended.
