From Rocky Hill Country Day School

This year, Rocky Hill Country Day School is celebrating 85 years of educating students. From our earliest days to today, Rocky Hill has been rooted in its sense of community and care for the whole child. We have valued an experiential approach to education, knowing that every child learns differently, and to truly know yourself, you must experience an array of opportunities and people both inside and outside the classroom. As a school community, we encourage students to become global citizens and lifelong learners, guiding them as they strive for knowledge and self-awareness. Our school motto “Know Thyself” remains a guiding principle in our approach to fulfilling our mission.

At RHCD, our vision is for students to be doing and becoming, emphasizing process over product. We inspire them to be scientists each day, rather than simply science students. Our interactive, hands on approach enlivens learning and makes it more meaningful.

    Rocky Hill Country Day School Reviews

    Something that I found appealing when looking at the school was the small class sizes that allowed individuals to be challenged. If a student needs to be accelerated or helped, RHCD does a great job of providing options for them. The Harkness style tables that are found in almost every classroom, make it feel like an inclusive environment where you have little option of hiding. Overall, I really have enjoyed my experience because I have been able to meet so many great students and teachers, as well as challenging and preparing myself for the future.

    Rocky Hill School is such a good school for any kind of student learner. I have been at Rocky Hill since the 5th grade, and I have not been anywhere that supports me more, in everything. I have ADHD and their ACE program helps me organize my homework (which is not much) and notes. The teachers are excellent and the community is amazing. The athletics are top-notch, and as a "no offseason" athlete, I could not find anywhere better to improve my athletic capabilities. Rocky Hill has taught me so much about myself and what kind of a learner I am, and they help me succeed in everything. Rocky Hill School is the perfect school for your child.
    The best thing about RHCD is the performance department. The partnership with Trinity Rep is wonderful. Deckhands theater is a great community and shining part of the school. The worst part is the diversity, as a student of color, it can feel isolating and uncomfortable to be in a school that doesn't understand what it is like to be the one of the few people of color in any room you're in. Overall RHCD has offered me many opportunities that I am grateful, and longlasting life connections that are great.
