At the elementary school level, key curricular areas such as reading, writing, and mathematics are the focus of a developmentally challenging environment. The foundation built by the development of basic skills is a springboard for creative problem-solving in literacy, math, global studies, and science at Jacksonville Country Day School.

JCDS is committed to guiding students as they follow their passions and reach their highest potential. As part of this commitment, students in grades 4th - 6th are taught by teachers specialized in their subject area. In our most senior grades (5th and 6th), JCDS also offers courses in executive functioning skills, digital citizenship, social-emotional learning, research and study skills, public speaking, and more.

Dedicated to helping all students reach their full potential, Jacksonville Country Day teachers are fully trained in providing brain-friendly techniques, as well as integrating technology and character education into their lessons. All teachers are degreed and certified.
