The Arts have always been an essential part of the student experience at North Shore. Founding Headmaster Perry Dunlap Smith believed, and we still believe, that exposure to performing and visual arts is critical to the development of the whole child and a quality education.
With the 2014 renovation and modernization of our Auditorium and Arts Center, students are immersed in spaces that become teaching laboratories allowing students to study, explore, create, design, build, perform and observe all forms of arts.
North Shore Country Day School is a junior kindergarten through 12th grade, college-preparatory school founded in Winnetka, Illinois in 1919.  With rigorous academic pursuit as the cornerstone, North Shore provides many opportunities for all students to excel – in the classroom and the laboratory, on the stage and the playing field, in their communities and beyond.
