    Far Hills Country Day School Reviews

    I have a different experience from the previous commenter. I work with the board and the administration a lot as a parent, through volunteer work as well as through special needs of my children. They are the most ethical group I have come across. A lot of these individuals are also parents in the school, they want nothing but the best for our children, they really want each of them succeed.

    The reason we were drawn to this school was because of the quality and dedication of the teachers. It is great for a school to score high on standardized tests but that does not speak much about a school, only of the students themselves. If I am paying this amount of tuition to a school I want not only my children to achieve high, but more importantly, that they are taught well. The teachers here are exceptional and passionate, as can be evidenced with numerous awards including best teacher of the year.

    My husband and I believe that the education of our children is our top priority. We want to provide the best experience and this is why our children attend Far Hills. We know the importance of teaching not only strong academics but social and emotional skills as well. Far Hills provides a wonderful balance of this. There is a true sense of community and warmth when you walk through the school. I know my children are being taught by amazing individuals who are devoted to bettering the lives of their students. Our three children have different needs. Far Hills does an excellent job of teaching to each child by providing challenge groups as well as extra support. Far Hills emphasizes the teaching of critical thinking skills, provides public speaking opportunities for all grades, and focuses on pillars such as kindness and respect. I truly believe Far Hills is preparing my children for the future - not just academically, but as caring, thoughtful members of society.
    Upon researching numerous schools through New Jersey we chose Far Hills Country Day School for its balance between academics and character development. We feel the vision and values of Far Hills are in line with what we believe to be a truly well rounded education.
    We love seeing our children come home happy and excited. We love that our children's academic and emotional needs are individually met. Every teacher we have met has shown an exceptional sense of love for FH. They all take a lot of pride in how they contribute to making FH a great school.
    There is a feeling of belonging and unity at each of the many events. There is no concern of what grade your child is in, we are all in this together, striving to better our children.
    There is a joint effort with FHCDS and their families to continually improve upon the school. Staff, students, and families have a genuine love for the school.
