Welcome to The Country School’s web site. If you are a current Country School family, we hope that what you find on these pages will give you more information about what is currently going on at our school. If you are an alumna or alumnus, we hope to provide some of the means to keep you connected to the school and the friends and memories you made here. If you are a prospective family, we hope to give you some of the information you will need to determine whether The Country School would be a good match for your child. While nothing takes the place of an in-person visit, we hope that this site’s images and information will give you a glimpse of what makes our school a unique educational asset to Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The Country School’s mission is to provide an outstanding academic experience for our students. We do so by adhering to some simple, but time-tested and powerful basics: small classes, individual attention, and an appropriate level of challenge for each of our learners all in a warm and nurturing family setting. Our school, while traditional and structured, is also wonderfully innovative, rich, vibrant, and child-centered. Our program provides our students with an outstanding faculty and with a firm grounding in essential academic skills yet also engenders a life-long love of learning.
We are proud of what The Country School offers its students, and we thank you for the chance to tell you more about its special character. We welcome your visit or call. Also, please offer us your input on how we can continue to improve this site to make it serve your needs.
