"When we began to look at South Orange Country Day, we were faced with the dilemma of switching our children from a school that our children were very comfortable to a new environment. Our children, particularly our son, was not really good with change. As we expected, the first couple of days he was uncooperative. In response, the folks at SOCDS were very patient...they worked with him...they found things that he wanted to do...slowly they built his level of engagement. At the two month mark, we sat down with Ms. Annemarie and his teacher and to our surprise, not only had he adjusted, his real potential had started to surface."

Welcome to SOCDS

Thank you for your interest in our school. South Orange Country Day School has been educating students since the 1960s.  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 Friday in October 2015 at 10am.
