Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy of education at MARK COUNTRY DAY is humanistic in tone. Caring professionals provide that special love and understanding so necessary to a child's sense of individuality and self-worth. A happy, warm environment fosters a true love for learning and the self-motivation so important to the realization of one's full potential. Self-esteem, lovingly instilled and carefully nurtured, is the basis for all teacher/student interactions.
Academics at MARK COUNTRY emphasize the BASICS, stress the natural and social sciences while encouraging critical thinking and intellectual curiosity .
Respect, positive attitudes and values are integral to the curriculum.
Course study is designed to challenge, excite and enrich all of our students who range from average to gifted in intelligence.
Small classes allow for individual instruction and permit structured and unstructured educational opportunities.
Enrichment activities abound and each day is filled with experiences fashioned to stimulate cognitive abilities and to expand sensory images.
Special events, community involvement, guest speakers and field trips enhance the curriculum and augment the scope and sequence of all disciplines.
At MARK COUNTRY DAY, we focus on children as our most precious natural resource...and that's the way it should be.
