Why independent school?
Independent schools are private, pre-collegiate schools with their own unique missions; institutions that, though private, are publicly accountable to parents, the wider community, and accrediting associations.
Research suggests that independent schools:
- Are close-knit communities
- Provide individualized attention for students and smaller classes
- Are staffed with high-quality and committed teachers
- Offer hands-on learning opportunities
- Provide educational experiences extending beyond the classroom
- Are full of actively engaged parents
- Are supportive learning environments
TDS is a member of multiple independent school organizations, including the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS), the NC Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS), and the Triangle Independent School Consortium (TISC).
More than 2,000 NAIS schools across the United States provide high-quality education to more than 700,000 students from pre-K through high school. In North Carolina, approximately 40,000 students attend an NCAIS school. Learn more about independent schools from these organizations by clicking below.
