Teaching with Distinction
Dedicated, passionate, and professional teachers are the heart of Country Day. Our exceptional faculty nurture highly motivated students in a caring and inclusive community that is committed to continuous improvement.
More than 200 educators make up our full-time, JK–12 faculty, a diverse team of professionals who love what they do. Our faculty members work in close collaboration with one another, constantly seeking new ways to integrate curricula and strengthen their students’ experiences. They are supported through ongoing, high-quality professional development and a collegial atmosphere of commitment to best practices and innovation.
“As a teacher here for more than 20 years, I regard Country Day as a special place. Because of the high bar in professional development, the school has provided me with opportunities, such as traveling the world, that very few, if any, other teaching positions offer. I consider myself very lucky to be part of such an extraordinary community of parents, students, and educators.”
