South Orange Country Day School is celebrating over 40 years of educating young children in a progressive, child-centric environment. Our community of families reflects the diversity of our neighborhoods. This diversity creates an environment where children experience different cultures and global experiences and, most importantly, learn how more alike we are than how we are different.
Thank you for your interest in our school. South Orange Country Day School has been educating students since the 1960s. For the past few years we have been working to create an environment that encourages learning, fosters independence, and demands personal responsibility. Our students practice personal responsibility by caring for their items in their backpack everyday. They also practice group behavior by learning to line up and follow the person in front of you. When students select the centers they want to work in, they are developing their independence. We are practicing empathy as we approach conflict resolution from understanding how the other person felt. Please come and learn more about our school. We are hosting open houses every Tuesday in October 2014 at 10am.
