  • What Our Alumni Say

    "SCDS challenged me to think globally, to discern the devil in the details, and to unabashedly ask questions about the things that I didn’t understand.  The myriad of clubs one could join, the access to the arts of many disciplines, the many sports teams – all created an environment that allowed the students intellectual independence, creativity, innovation, a strong sense of self, as well as collegiality."  
    Joseph Conyers ‘99
    "What I loved most about Country Day was the support that we always got from the faculty… The confidence and ease to initiate contact with some of the most influential professors in the fields was something that Country Day taught me very early on and something that I have used extensively in my time here at Stanford."
    Kim Nguyen ‘11
    "In looking back, I think what I value most about my SCDS education is the rigorous academic preparation that we received.  Classes were small enough to foster active engagement.  Teachers were passionate about their work.  They cared about each of us individually, and fostered both love of learning and a strong work ethic."
    Janet Shepherd ‘77
    "SCDS prepared me for college by it's rigorous curriculum and focus on electives and after school programs. When I got to college, I was prepared for anything that came my way. SCDS also put me around positive minded and successful people. Once you are around those groups, you will have no choice but to be successful yourself."
    Joey Bell '97

    “SCDS taught me the importance of preparation and a disciplined work ethic. On the athletic fields, our coaches were the absolute best at making sure we were always the most prepared. Working hard in practice and utilizing all the preparation helped us make a lot of great memories. Academically, the teacher’s really shined at emphasizing preparation. Because the academics are so rigorous we had to be organized and disciplined in our studies. The teachers never assigned work without also assisting in the preparation of that work. What I learned at Country Day made the transition to college and the workplace much easier.”
    McNab Reeves '07
