    Miami Country Day School Reviews

    I love Country Day for the teachers and resources we have! However, I would say that it is not hard to find someone acting spoiled and snobby within the student body. This is a given considering most students at the school are wealthy and have been lavished with excellent education since birth. It is annoying at times, though, to see students not appreciate the resources and teachers we have. Miami Country Day does a more than great job at preparing for college and for growing our intellectual minds in and outside the classroom!

    Miami Country Day School is an AWSOME school. As it is pricey, the money is worth it. Their arts program is the best in Miami. There are Drama, Art, Music and many more of those classes. College prep at that school is very good. For sports you have so much to choose. Swimming , Tennis, and even golf. Unlike other schools, they have great food. When I went for Spartans Day, which was a day for the students that got accepted to spend a day in the school, there was such great food. On that day, they had shrimp and rice, Sandwiches (all different kinds) and much more! Love this school.
    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!
