Our daughter has been at WCDS since PreK, so we're on our 6th year. We've been extremely pleased with her education - the classic curriculum, small class sizes, emphasis on character, participation in sports, etc. It's definitely worth the tuition (and in my mind more reasonable than others in the area). ...  Read more

We chose to look at Wakefield Country Day School during my eldest son's junior year at a neighboring private prep school. Unfortunately the environment in this particular school began to shift and our family felt it was necessary to make a change. As you can imagine we were extremely concerned with having ...  Read more

My son spent his entire academic career at WCDS from pre-k through 12th grade. In addition to a strong curriculum, I've found the staff and faculty to be supportive of his learning needs over the years. It was a third grade teacher at WCDS who identified my son's ability to accelerate and the school ...  Read more

As a parent new to the school this past year, I have been incredibly impressed with the education my child has received from the two English classes taught each day to the Latin, Spanish, History, Science, Geography, Math, and electives offered. For a school this small, the students are able to participate ...  Read more

I have a 13 year history with this school. My older sibling and I transferred to the school in middle school, graduated from the school and went to universities. We did fairly well for ourselves, so our parents decided to keep our younger sibling at the school. He began at WCDS in Pre-K and attended ...  Read more

My son is a student in Wakefield's Pre-K class this year and he has had a wonderful experience! At this age it's all about the teacher and his teacher is so full of love and enthusiasm that you literally see children light up in front of her. And she's not using her magic idly. Their days are packed ...  Read more

This is a great school with a great academic program that encourages responsibility, individualism and challenging oneself. Students will not struggle at college after graduating from here. I think the new head of school will be great for the developement and furtherment of an already great program. ...  Read more

Very interesting that Wakefield with the "Wonderful" Classical education it offers -does offer the IB progam or Diploma -with the small amount of students -the Faculty should be able to tailor the classes around IB-that Diploma is recognized world wide. Also , with the very , very small classes and ...  Read more

Okay, so my 15 year-old-daughter who attended WCDS from K to 8th grade is starting her sophomore year at a big (compared to Wakefield) public school in northern California (we moved for my husband's job). Even though this is her second year at UPrep, she felt the need to go to her first classes of the ...  Read more

This school has been great for my son socially, emotionally and academically. I love the fact that ethical and moral standards are promoted and they do not compromise their values for anyone or make any apologies for holding students individually accountable for their actions. The curriculum lends itself ...  Read more
