North Shore Country Day School Reviews

The school provides a rigorous, well-rounded education. Class sizes are small in the elementary school years so children receive a lot of individualized attention. The science and arts program are quite strong. The only areas of improvement are diversity (less diverse than private schools in Chicago due to location) and breadth of extracurriculars.

Great experience! I know all of my teachers very well and they are all invested in seeing me progress.
North Shore as an amazing amount of resources, well beyond what most schools of North Shore's size have. The library houses everything from children's books to antique literature from the 19th century. The athletic facilities are top notch and commensurate with North Shore's high level of athletic competition. Above all, though, are the college counselors. As a result of their work, North Shore's college counseling department has come to be known as the top in its level of academic prestige (Latin, Chicago Lab, Parker). They prepare students exceedingly well for the college process, and are a very accessible resource throughout it.
