Country Day School
The Country Day School is an independent university-preparatory, non-denominational school for boys and girls located in King City, a community north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. With a student population of approximately 700, the renewal and expansion of the Senior School will provide a focus for kindergarten to grade 12 students and will greatly enhance the overall learning environment. The school’s 80-acre site overlooks rolling hills and protected wetlands that are part of the vast Oak Ridges Moraine, a vital watershed for the region.
Farrow Partnership was selected to complete the planning and design for this project. The new Senior School program includes classrooms, science laboratories, a library, art rooms, administration, guidance and staff offices, common areas and rooms, washrooms, change rooms and storage rooms. A new 400-seat dining hall will include on-site food preparation for catering, loading and storage areas. The design and functionality of the space will integrate well with the school’s country setting and will particularly embrace the wetlands to the east of the existing senior school.
