I am a current parent at MCDS and I couldn't be happier! My child is learning and thriving and most importantly, he is happy. We both receive such a warm welcome every morning by staff and students alike. My son is involved in swimming and soccer and is excelling academically. The campus is gorgeous and allows for students to explore all of their interests from academics to the arts to athletics. Wonderful community to be a part of. I highly recommend Miami Country Day School!

I am a current parent of two children at Miami Country Day School and it's been a wonderful experience thus far. Both children are so different as far as academics and interests are concerned and the school is a great fit for both. I have been at the school for eight years and have watched my children grow and evolve. Being a former New Yorker, I was new to Miami and looking for a sense of community in the school we chose. I was not disappointed. The unique whole child philosophy has given my children a unique outlook on their future and education. I highly recommend this school for families that are looking for a connection to the community, a strong academic college preparatory program and the teaching of core values.
My son has attended since middle school, and we have been very satisfied thus far. The teachers have been very supportive and show a real interest in making sure your child succeeds. The campus and facilities are beautiful, secure, and state-of-the-art. There are numerous extracurricular and curriculum options for various student interests. The school also promotes community involvement. Overall, I highly recommend the school!
