I attended Providence Day school from 6th grade until 12th grade and I wouldn't trade that for the world. The teachers were always readily available and eager to help and the recourses are unmatchable. The campus is beautiful and the perfect size, and the food is the best school food I've eaten to this day. It's better than my school food in college which is hard to adjust to. I would recommend PD to anyone and everyone and I would do my experience over again in a minute. Thank you to PD for giving me a wonderful education and the best friends of my life!

When I moved to PD freshman year, I had no trouble finding friends. While everyone finds their own group of friends, people can be exclusive. The average student is smart, privileged, athletic, and involved. The academic culture encourages students to take difficult classes, seek help from teachers/tutors, and work hard. There are plenty of resources for students, the best of which is the amazing teachers, but it's up to students to seek them out. Also, I've yet to meet a student that isn't involved in an extracurricular. The most popular extracurriculars are sports, theater, Students of Service, and different affinity groups. The football/basketball culture is fun, but can be annoying as administration favors them.

There's some diversity here, but there's still a long way to go in making every student feel comfortable here. Most students, including myself, are pretty privileged, and I often hear people complaining about "first world problems."
I enjoyed going to Providence Day. I was there for all of middle school and the first two years of high school (or upper school as they called it). The school had a lot of resources and the teachers were readily available and eager to help. I still keep in contact with some of my teachers to this day! Their library was amazing and you could request books that weren't there. The food was good, but a little expensive. Of course I loved the campus, it was big enough that you wouldn't run into all the little kids, but just small enough so that you could get to all your classes within 3-4 minutes. Of course I've heard that there's going to be major construction, so who knows what the campus will look like in 5 years. The headmaster is really funny, at least during my tenure there. He was British and always there to greet the younger kids in the morning no matter rain or shine. As a whole I want to say, I'm glad I went to school at PDS.
