El Paso Country Day School is an educational institution that provides a creative system of learning for children who express the highest intellectual and academic potential PreK through 8th grade. We engage the mental and emotional development of the whole child in small classes within a culturally diverse student body. The school provides the foundation and framework for the acquisition of ethical standards, logical reasoning, critical and creative thought, and the essential humanistic qualities for independent and responsible adults. Founded in 1980, the school has a rich tradition of providing for the academic and emotional development of the whole child in small class settings within a culturally and socially diverse student body. The student body includes students from 22 different countries and all socio-economic backgrounds.
