30 Parent Reviews for Lancaster Country Day School

The students and teachers become tight knit but the school isn't worth the money anymore. It's become less of a school and more of a money making organization. The tuition rates in elementary have almost tripled while the quality of education has declined. The school just is no longer what it once was. ...  Read more

As a student attending LCDS, I can assure you that the previous comment is untrue. Granted, the school is very small, but the student body is not 'groupy' in the least, rather the LCDS community is one of the most accepting and encouraging ones I've ever been a part of. Yes, it is very tightly knit, ...  Read more

THIS SCHOOL IS JUST OKAY, THE PEOPLE ARE VERY GROUPY AND EXCLUDING. NOT TO SAY THE WHOLE SCHOOL IS LIKE THAT, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE. THERE IS A LOT OF GOSSIP SINCE IT IS SUCH A SMALL SCHOOL. THE TEACHERS ARE GOOD, BUT SOME ARE NOT SO GOOD. OVERALL, THE SCHOOL IS OKAY.

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
