At Sacramento Country Day School, young students have
opportunities to develop all facets of their character. We
teach peaceful conflict resolution techniques to create and
sustain a harmonious environment. All Lower School teachers have
been trained in Responsive Classroom techniques to help students
develop respectful, joyful, and peaceful communities in their
classrooms and beyond.
Country Day students are involved in their community and the
world. The “Habit of Helping,” the term employed by former
headmaster Dan White in 1989 for the 25th anniversary is still
practiced by the Country Day community today. We sing at the
assisted living center down the street, raise vegetables in our
garden that go to the food bank, Run to Feed the Hungry, and play
music all day to raise money to support our sister Rulindo
Schools in Rwanda.
