27 Parent Reviews for Lancaster Country Day School

The previous comment is inaccurate. LCDS's strengths are clear. I know that this past year, the school had nearly 300 applications for about 100 places and had a higher opening enrollment than at any time in its history, despite its cost. Its measure of selectivity and the efficiency of its classrooms ...  Read more

This school is a scam. Expensive and yet low quality. The building and infrastructure are nice. But they just pass students on to the next grade (even if they are a grade or more behind). If you have a 'special needs kid' who you want to just get moved to the next grade without actually doing the ...  Read more

This school believes wholeheartedly that segregation of students with special needs is completely unacceptable. Educating students with special needs in segregated settings commonly used in public schools undermines the fairness that all students must receive. It is the parent's responsibility to teach ...  Read more

This school is not interested in working with children that have any academic challenges. Please be cautious if you have these concerns for your child.

Five of my children have had excellent experiences as students of Lancaster Country Day School. Teachers went above and beyond for each child. My children thrived on being shown a wide range of academic content and a strong arts education. As citizens of the world, I am proud of their commitment to participating ...  Read more

It is a horrible school that expects all students to be on college-bound and AP track. Whatever happens to tracking students based on their abilities? Perhaps, schools should return to this practice rather than expect all students to succeed in college. Not everyone can make it in college, which unfortunately ...  Read more

Great school--both of my children who have very different personalities/learning styles are thriving. The classes are not traditional/rote in nature where all the children are sitting all the time. The faculty employ many different teaching methods to engage the children including hands-on, discovery-based, ...  Read more

The teachers at Lancaster Country day are an extraordinary group. Small class sizes further enhance the Country Day experience. Our older child made the transition to middle school last year and he was well prepared academically for the switch. Equally important, the faculty is in tune with the social ...  Read more

I attended LCDS for middle and upper school and I always say I would not be who I am without having gone there. Now, almost 20 years later, I can say that the same feeling is true for my own children. They are confident, relaxed yet challenged on a daily basis. They are truly thriving at LCDS. The teachers ...  Read more

My children started at LCDS last year. We have been very pleased with the experience. Country Day follows the independent school model extremely well -- the school has exceptional faculty, the average class size is 14 and the graduates seem especially well-prepared for college. The school has 17% students ...  Read more
