If you are looking for a school that will give your child a well-rounded education, good morals, a sense of community and structured, rigorous academics....this is the place for you! The staff is extremely dedicated to each and every child which includes the child's family in their everyday school activities. This is NOT an elite school for the rich and famous. There are all levels of education and financial background represented by the families who send their children here.
Culturally enriching field trips, creative arts, performing arts, language arts, sports, and after-school enriching activities are open to everyone of all grades. Students are allowed to explore every level of the arts without peer pressure and it is wonderful to see how they flourish in this type of environment. My son loves sports but will jump on a stage to sing in the musical without any hesitation. It's amazing to see how the students interract with each other. They are taught to respect and care about each other while staying focused on their education.
The staff is extremely dedicated. As far as turn-over, the statements made below are exaggerated...one art teacher married the gym teacher and moved out of state, the next art teacher had a baby and left to raise her family...the first bookkeeper was with the school for 10 years! (then left to help raise her family as well) The school believes in family first and the teachers who stay are not 'supported by their husbands'...that's a little chauvenistic...don't you think?? They are dedicated to the students and most feel that teaching in a nurturing environment with families who care, outweights tenure and red tape somewhere else.
As far as agenda...PTF or otherwise....the school doesn't tolerate families who try to financially gain by selling their wares and using the school as a social climbing tool. Their only goal is to give the student a good foundation!! (Molloy...talk about caveat emptor...I want my $30 back!)

Pros: Educating the "whole" child - arts and all!

Cons: Stops at 6th grade - should go on...and on...and on...

We moved out of the city after 911 and have been extremely happy with the education our son has received. He has excelled beyond our expectation. The foreign language, character education and field trips are highly educational. Music, art and sports - soccer, basketball, baseball, are add-ons that round out his experience. We are very happy with our choice and the dedication of the pricipal and the teachers.

Pros: Field trips are enlightening, for the kids as well as the parents

Cons: A more nutritional lunch service could be improved on

We have been at Raynor for 4 school years, since our son came out of a small school in NYC in second grade. He was immediately engaged by the warm, experienced teachers and the work, as well the by the other children welcoming him as a newcomer. He has learned so much so quickly in such a rich learning and healthy social environment. Specifically we appreciate the quality teaching- foreign languages starting in third grade, as well reading music and playing an instrument, advanced math and kid friendly physics as a special program. They also have special attention for children that learn in different ways, finding that area to help that child excell as well. Our son's self esteem has grown and we are so proud of his achievements which of course are directly related to the care, nurturing, education and enthusiasm that the amazing teachers, staff and family community at Raynor Country Day School provide.

Kudos to the teachers who made it possible for my child to flourish in so many areas of his life. Those experiences will remain with him for the rest of his life.
