Academic Success

The measure of Academic Success at Miami Country Day is as unique as each individual student. Our support and enrichment services are guided by the needs of every student, every day.
The CASW team ensures that our interventions are aligned across the PK3-12 program and appropriate for the student’s age/grade and needs. Driven by strengths, we ensure that each student feels success.

Lower School
MCDS provides accommodations and/or adjustments to meet a student’s minor needs. The administration will determine what accomodations are within the reasonable ability of the school and/or its staff and will not result in a significant disruption to the overall classroom, school day and MCDS experience for all students, faculty, and staff.
Accommodations must not alter school order and discipline, will not require a fundamental change to educational program, environment, or mission, and will not impose responsibilities on school employees for which they are not properly trained.
Given the size of our school and our available resources, we may not be able to provide all requested accommodations. To the extent we agree to offer accommodations, we may require a sharing of responsibility for the accommodation.
