Harbor Country Day School
17 Three Sisters Rd, St James, NY 11780
This traditional school, founded by a group of local parents, serves western Suffolk County. Beginning in prekindergarten, all boys and girls study a foreign language. Pupils learn to use technology in the context of their daily lessons through work in the computer lab and the availability of laptop computers for classroom use in the upper grades. Writing is an important element of Harbor's curriculum, which emphasizes development of the writing process across disciplines. The school's practice of differentiation, a classroom teaching technique that utilizes continual assessment to address students' varying learning needs, enables children to acquire knowledge and develop skills according to their readiness, interests and learning styles. Boys and girls in grades 5-8 participate in various optional community service projects during the course of the year.
