The tremendous value that co-education offers is well documented: when all children are encouraged to view each other as partners in learning, play and friendship, gender stereotypes are diminished and opportunities for understanding increase.
The Country Day School is a co-educational school. We embrace diversity, equality and offer a wide range of learning experiences, friendships and role models. When boys and girls learn and play together, broadening and influencing each other every day, they develop sophisticated social and emotional understanding.
Developmental opportunities are not limited by gender; friends are not restricted to any particular category; and the education of the child includes recognizing others as unique individuals and rejecting stereotypical notions about what it means to be a boy or a girl.
We believe that co-education best prepares children for their future as compassionate, productive and socially-aware learners and people.
