Castlehill Country Day School is a unique educational environment providing classes for toddlers through 5th graders. Our school is guided by the notion that there is no greater gift than the gift of education, but, not just any education, an excellent education in a nurturing environment. An environment where children can feel safe and secure, and loved; where they can study, but also play. The first years in a child’s development, as they mature from toddler to 5th grader, are so critical in influencing the later years in life.
Every teacher, staff and volunteer at Castlehill believes in teaching the whole child – in addition to the standard curriculum, we emphasize the importance of teaching children to appreciate the arts, cultivate a love of reading, become stewards of the environment and contributing members to our community.
Castlehill Country Day School occupies an 8-acre campus on the northeast of Tucson. A commitment to academic excellence forms the basis for the School’s educational philosophy. Students develop solid skills in oral and written language, mathematics, science, history and geography, enriched by strong programs in computer, foreign language, physical development, art, and music. This program emphasizes our fundamental philosophy of adapting the curriculum to each child’s needs and abilities. Students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills that prepare them for a lifetime of learning. The school admits students of any race, color, creed, national and ethnic origin and encourages students to explore, understand, respect and value their differences. This policy is based on the belief that diversity among students enriches the educational experience.
