Our Mission

Founded in 1986 by Barbara A. Rogers, The Mendham Country Day School is an independent, co-educational, elementary school serving children in preschool through sixth grade. The School sees as its mission the preparation of students intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, and aesthetically to participate in a changing and increasingly complex society.

The School seeks to develop each child's intellectual abilities in a nurturing environment. To this end we offer an academically challenging program in a non-competitive school climate in which children are encouraged to achieve academic excellence through the development of intellectual curiosity, personal accountability and love for learning.

Our purpose is to prepare students to achieve academically at a level which is commensurate with their abilities. Through traditional curriculum we seek to enable students to be successful in high school and beyond. Through active, positive, and mutually respectful interaction among their peers and teachers, our students learn to honor individuality, embrace diversity and promote leadership and service.
