“Every day that I come to Rye Country Day School, I am excited by the prospect of seeing the natural world through the eyes of our youngest students. I am surrounded daily by the wonder and joy that children get from learning about new things! I am equally excited by being able to plan and collaborate with some of the most skilled teaching professionals who are passionate about what they teach. It makes me a better teacher and person.”

“From science, from the arts, and everything in between, there’s really something for every kid here, which is very special.”

“They really enforce getting to know everyone and making the community as accepting and as warm as it can possibly be, while also having a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and experience new things and find what you love.”
