In an area where the public schools are amongst the best in the nation, it would ordinarily be difficult to justify a recommendation to a private school however, the exception is Rolling Hills Country Day School (“RHCD”). For a variety of reasons too lengthy to list here in this review, I can unequivocally say that RHCDS is simply suburb and a cut above the very competitive alternatives in the area. As a Palos Verdes resident and a parent who has had children in both public and private schools, I have a good understanding of the options for schools in the South Bay. Although every child’s needs and abilities are unique, if you are serious about preparing your child for high school and life beyond, RHCDS is without hesitation the school I recommend.
