From North Shore Country Day

Established in 1919, North Shore is an independent, coeducational school for students in JK-12th grade. Here, education is a student-centered, transformative experience where students receive personal attention and diverse perspectives, while being immersed in a culture of participation. One of the advantages of a school like North Shore is that students are part of a cohesive academic experience. Our teachers and administrators have developed a curriculum that takes students from one grade to the next on an intentional path to their academic growth and development. The result is that our graduates consistently tell us North Shore has prepared them incredibly well for college.
