"As a preschooler in Florida, Chris excelled in his daily learning activities, and his teachers were keenly aware.  This observation led my family to search for a school that could further challenge Chris and develop the whole child. After visiting several schools in the Fort Worth area, we chose Fort Worth Country Day.  The environment and the curriculum encourage Chris to strive for success now and in the future."
-Daisy DuBose, Chris' Grandmother
