If you look on Wikipedia, you will find pure propogandalikelove written by the staff of the school, and the definitions here are vague and hateful. So this is supposed to be the non biased yet detailed definition. The other definitions are very accurate, but it is neither black nor white and more of a rainbow of diversity swirled into shades of grey. Robin Williams attended and so did the C.E.O. of microsoft. Robin Williams didn't like it, and he ended up moving to California so he only attended the middle school amd about one year of high school but while attending he was on the wrestling team (a picture of him wrestling is featured in the school entranceway) and was known as an honorary Jew.

The main stereotypes you will see there are:
Smart asians, mostly Indian and mostly who have parents who are strict doctors who value education
Atheletes on scholarship (a lot from Detroit although some kids on scholarship are picked for reasons other than sports, but these are somewhat rare)
Kids whose parents teach there tend to get in easier and get a discount on the twenty grand tuition
Rich people (including the Jew Crew, and a few sons and daughters of C.E.O.'s and executives, the girl who's dad is Dr. Z recently graduated)

The culture of the school is quite odd mainly because of the propoganda running it and the strict rules. Students are required to take two sports a year, (one of which is allowed to be weight training or a play, and the other which has to be a real sport that competes against schools. If you really want to know about the tedious points system that requires students to join imaginary clubs (such as ping pong and newspaper that all meet for an hour a week) and ten hours of community service a year (helping out trophy wives at the school charity auction counts) you can read the incredibly biased wikipedia definition. It is factual, but the things that are considered great and prestigious really aren't. The newspaper wins awards because it's shiny and worked on very hard and only a few are released per year, and the yearbook encompasses the lower, junior, middle, and upper school. (they don't like using normal words) The vast majority of the faculty is prissy and uncool, although two teachers are rumored to have smoked pot with students in the past, and other such exceptions exist. The sports are okay, but are still only division 2. Students are frequently forced to sit through grueling assemblies by anyone who walks by or just because the faculty feels like discussing respect or a moral quality. Some examples are an off broadway show that wanted to use the expensive performing arts center and did a show for the students about immigrants with bad songs and singing that everyone fell asleep during and was reprimanded for.

Students of this school should not be given a hard time because of what they have to go through. This school gives out more homework than any school in the area, and thanks to that, it's very hard to focus on very much else. Students are driven mad by the amount of work and studying, and the strict system the school is run by makes it even harder. No kid living in the state of Michigan is really allowed to complain about school work unless they are attending Detroit Country Day and if you get nothing out of this definition all you really need to know is Detroit Country Day=lots of studying and more stress than you can imagine.

p.s. The students wear adorable little uniforms with blazers and ties and the girls have to wear navy blue blazers and a dcds tie and a grey skirt for color day (ironically named) and usually wear blue knee socks. Since there's no rules on shoes or jewelry and such, girls do tend to go over the top. Casual days come rarely and are usually only given as rewards. The student body does have some interesting characters that manage to be entertaining and persevere. You have to give them bonus points for surviving.
person:That kid goes to Detroit Country Day
other person: Oh, that kid has a lot of homework

Originally based in Detroit, but quickly moved to the suburbs area of metro Detroit when admissions actually became significant, the school is a secular private institution. There are three campuses and four schools in total. The Upper school is the equivalent of a Highschool and is - in my honest opinion- the only high quality school experience.

The school year at DCDS is shorter than surrounding public schools, and the school offers days off and nights without homework due to several different cultural events.

The school uniform at the Upper School for men consists of a general tie, a white shirt with a DCDS monogram, khaki or grey pants with a DCDS monogram, dress shoes obviously, and an expensive blazer or varsity sweater on top of it all. The top button of the button down shirt is meant to be buttoned at most times, but the faculty is lenient. You must be clean-shaven, or you will get a detention.

No hats, no earrings, no visible tattoos, no piercings, cell phones must be off unless between classes, you must wear a belt, and have your collar buttons done. This is, of course, if you get caught by a dean or draw attention to yourself in class.

Women may wear a khaki, blue, or grey skirt, or (this is new) they may wear pants like the guys. A girl does not need to wear a tie with a blazer or a sweater every day, but she needs a blazer on color days.

The Honors and AP classes are relaxed yet difficult.
The classes offered to ordinary students may have teachers that are either too lenient or too harsh.

Most homework dished out is busywork, and many moral standards are expected of the students. Every three or four weeks their is a CARE event or assembly which the entire school promptly sleeps through.

Although the school is known to "recruit" students, most people come to the school of their own curiosity or ambition. Due to higher numbers of financial aid students and scholarship students, the school is losing money recently despite the ever-rising tuition cost.

Faculty children are ,on average, as capable as any other student at DCD. Many faculty kids start at Country Day in one of the lower of the four schools. Unfortunately though, many faculty children develop unusual traits in response to the harsh environment.

Attending DCDS often creates a feeling of superiority in the student; they like to say that they're a "cut above". Although arrogance is quite common amongst DCDS students, they're completely aware of it and often satirize themselves for this feature.

In short a country day student is generally: qualified, overworked and a lazy snob
DCDS Student 1:"Did you hear that a freshman got a perfect score on the MMPC?"
DCDS Student 2:"Hmm? No, I was too busy last night watching us win the Men's Soccer State finals, while at the same time practicing my viola for Solo & Enemble for Orchestra Festival."
DCDS Student 1:"Yeah, so you didn't finish your homework did you?"
DCDS Student 2:"Haha, I still have the rest of assembly to do that!"

Athlete 1: "Did you hear that our next game is against Detroit Country Day?"
Athlete 2: "Aaah... Fuck."

A Detroit Country Day student starts school after labor day and a DCDS senior does not attend actual school for the last quarter of the year.

Where suck-ups and star athletes thrive but normal kids get pushed aside. The competition for a high school is ridiculous. Awards and recognition by teachers are more important than true friends. The headmaster is as good of a speaker as George Bush and the Dean articulates like he has an IQ of 8. There are some really good teachers but the majority need to go back to college and get a teaching degree because they don't make sense during class.
Previous definitions failed to mention how most of the guys aren't much better than the girls. The guys who are pricks think they are gods but when they get to college their asses will be pummeled and then they'll cry. Dating a Brother Rice boy seems to make them mad because they are "rivals" both on and off the field (idiots). The girls always seem to dress exactly the same on casual days. We have girls who come up with retarded acronyms for their names. (seriously WHO DOES THAT?!?) Some people think that their entire grade is friends with eachother but that is bullshit. Just because you're "popular" doesn't mean everyone likes you. Most are just entertained by your blatant acts of stupidity.
Restriction and restraints are how they control us. There is NO school spirit, it dies a little more each time new rules like "No more Jenga during study halls it gets too 'rowdy'" are made. We are watched constantly like criminals. Retared rules are made for everyone because the administration is too afraid to punish just a few students because those student's parents donate money (or they are the child of an administrator).
Besides, what the fuck kind of name is "Detroit Country Day"?! We aren't that close to Detroit but we aren't out in the country either and where does the "Day" even come from?!
If you still go to DCDS and can't get out just remember; stay under the radar of the assholes (adults and kids alike) and you'll be fine...that or just give all the jackasses hell.
And to the two people who wrote before me; it sounds like we are already friends and if we aren't we should be. ;)
And if any fuckin dick writes something after this that tries to defend Country Day or ridicule these definitions I just want to tell them that they are the exact person that most despised. But hey be who you are, it takes all kinds and I don't give a flying fuck.
public schooler: "hey you seem bitter. where did you go to school?"
country day student : "...i paid for prison"
public schooler: "?..oh yeah i hear Detroit Country Day is a bitch"
:another example below:
kiss ass: "omigod! sign my yearbook?"
person with a soul: *thinking 'wow you are SO fake'* "ummm...yeah sure" *writes 'please do not keep in touch'*

A college preparatory school located in the Detroit Metropolitan area. The system is corrupt and half of the school tuition goes to the headmaster to pay for his brand new yacht. (see: Twat) What's left of the $20,000+ tuition is spent on useless landscaping and hiring caterers when the state health inspectors drop by to evaluate the low-budget lunch program. The remaining funds are spent buying basketball player from other schools to play on our team. Donations are literally begged for by the headmaster.

They say that they treat you like adults, but in reality, they treat you like you can't take a shit without hurting yourself.

What we are not allowed to do:

Hug (It's innapropriate)
Carry a backpack around (It's not safe)
Toss a saltine cracker at my friend
Take off our vests when we are hot
Wear a coat when they try and cut back on the heating bill
Voice our opinion
Laugh

Generally, DCD sucks camel penis.
Scott: Where do you go to?
Kyle: Detroit Country Day.
Scott: Your life must suck.

an overrated trash prep school, where they buy black athletes from poor schools to play their sports for them. A diverse school, in which asian and indian doctor families have nothing better to do with their money. a school which everyone clearly hates, where there is nothing better to do than do homework 24/7, where the only good thing is the ice cream,and the events suck. Where girls learn how to be sloppy and slutty, frying their hair with their straightners every second they can (ie. bathrooms, lockerrooms) except that the locker rooms have a reputation for being dike city. The girls think their gross ties are hot, and wear half skirts and 1748574923 inch platforms, while the whole time, the country day guys arent looking at the hoes. Also, a place where girls like to act dumb to look cute.
Guy 1: man i hooked up with a Detroit Country Day girl last nite
Guy 2: oh god, man that sucks im sorry
Guy 1: what did u do last nite
Guy 2: actually met smart goodlooking girls that arent fake
Guy 1: oh man too bad we dont have any of those at our school
