Why Our Families Love Us

The Downes Family

As a third generation legacy family at The Country School, I am most thankful for the nurturing, caring environment and the friendships found at this wonderful school. As my children once did, my grandchildren are establishing strong study skills and a sense of responsibility that will serve them well in their future education and adult life. As I do, they will all look back and be thankful for the happy days and the 'right start' they received at The Country School.

I am thankful that my children are receiving the same wonderful experience that I did when I was at Country School… full of traditions, values, friendships, and memories. As graduates of the Country School, Lydia and Matthew were extremely prepared for high school. Both academically and socially, they have had the skills needed to be successful and I am thankful for the 9 wonderful years they spent as a Cougar!
