20 Parent Reviews for Far Hills Country Day School

Far Hills Country Day School is only concerned with how much money parents have and not what the students are learning or how they are behaving. The academic program is disappointing to say the least. This school is so misdirected and has their priorities are way out of order.

Far Hills is truly a gem of a school. The teachers are exceptional, secondary school placement is extremely impressive, and the facility is second to none. The approach at this school is all about balance; the balance between academics and character development and the balance between rigor and nurture. ...  Read more

Far Hills Country Day school is an exceptional combination of academic excellence and character and confidence building experiences for the students.

Over the years, the administration has grown increasingly out of touch - they don't seem to have any idea what really happens in the classroom, they have a beater-down faculty, dwindling enrollment, and a board hand-picked ...  Read more

As a parent of an FHCDS student, I have seen my child grow both academically and socially/emotionally thanks to the support of a dedicated team of teachers and administrators. She continues to make us proud every day and we will certainly miss FHCDS but we will never forget the confidence and love of ...  Read more

This school is a WOW. My daughter has been at another local private school as well as the local public school - and the balance between academics and character development is something no other school offers. FHCDS develops a community for both the student AND the family that is respectful and safe. ...  Read more

I can not say enough wonderful things about FHCDS. My son just completed his first year at the school and it was a wonderful experience for him as a student, and us as a family. Just as he was embraced by the students in his class (many of whom had already been at the school for several years), my ...  Read more

As a parent, I am truly disappointed in the education my child has received throughout the years at this school. My child has not been taught the appropriate skills and foundation building blocks needed to exceed academically for high school. Majority of the teaching staff are not state certified nor ...  Read more
