Rolling Hills Country Day School, founded in 1961, offers an educational environment that pursues excellence in the intellectual, moral, physical, and social development of our students in Kindergarten through Grade 8. While we present a forward-thinking curriculum, we are steeped in traditional educational values that foster ethical and independent work habits, community involvement, and strong interpersonal skills.
We provide an academic environment that challenges our students while nurturing them socially and emotionally. Our teachers create lessons that address varying auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles. Teachers encourage curiosity, acknowledge responsibility, support creative ideas, and appreciate different points of view. Small group activities, together with shared learning exercises, allow for a healthy balance of cooperative, competitive, and individual experiences. Country Day is more than a school; it is an outlet of expression and interest where students are taught more than concepts. Students actively engage others in effective and purposeful communication with empathy, clarity, and contact. The critical learner needs of Rolling Hills Country Day School are to develop analytical and problem solving skills, to advance excellence in math and reading comprehension, and to integrate technology into learning.
As our students develop their skills and enhance their natural abilities using the tools we provide, they come ever closer to achieving, and often surpassing their goals. Students leave Country Day School with a sense of personal confidence, a global perspective, and a true commitment to grounding principles such as integrity, social awareness, and ethical leadership, all of which will help them succeed both as individuals and as members of the global community.
