I love Country Day so much! They really prepare you for college and show you firsthand how classes are like in college. They are very supportive and willing to help you with schoolwork, college applications, and many other things. The students are very united and loving towards one another, and the community as a whole is very connected and supportive.
Review The Savannah Country Day School
I have always loved my time at Country Day. Since the beginning, I enjoyed my lower school experience. The school does a great job at engaging the younger kids by incorporating hands-on learning and using different styles to reach many ways of learning. My fondest memories are the active experiences. In third grade science class, individuals grew their choice in vegetables, learned about gardening and its importance, graphed its growth throughout the year, and took their plant home after learning how to stir-fry in class. One fun to watch project is the Fifth grader's ancient egyptian culture. One student might build a pyramid in art class; another might act out their death rituals; another might have a fashion display. Throughout my years, I have experience a sense of individuality in my education. Continuing into middle and high school, students are hold a responsibility to their education which allows for a lot of freedom. Not only do I feel like I have earned an overall knowledge across all subjects but also skills across the arts. Lower schoolers have music and art and are given different options by third grade (for example in musics, orchestra, jazz, chorus, or general music) Electives in the arts are required for most of middle and one year of high school, although many continue until graduation. Having so many options, it's easy to find an interest. Country Day also puts a high focus on "character" from a young age. Lessons on virtues are taught and students discuss things like the importance of their school's honor code. One of my favorite part of my education has been my connections with my teachers. Classes sizes are usually kept small, especially in middle and high school, so students get to know their teachers very well. I loved my connections with my teachers.
The lower school and middle school are unequivocally the best in coastal Georgia, and one of the best in the state. Solid basic academics, exposure to critical thinking at an early age, emphasis on writing skills and public speaking at even the earliest levels, and a powerful science, math and humanities curricula complement the area's most comprehensive fine arts program (more so at those levels even than the local public magnet schools). In high school, the humanities remain stellar, but science and math instruction can be more hit-and-miss--still the best in Savannah and Coastal Georgia, by far, but retaining truly outstanding science and math teachers can be more difficult, as demand is greater nationally. Fine arts instruction remain top-of-the-line in high school (all students must choose a fine art class, be it jazz band, strings, art, drama or chorus), and there are a number of languages offered--not just the requisite French and Spanish, but also Latin and Mandarin.
