<p>The Country School also puts emphasis on community service and environmental responsiblity. The George E. Stevens upper school building is LEED certified; and the ninth grade runs the Special Olympics hosted by the school each year.</p> <p>There are opportunities for all kids to play sports and get involved in music and theater. Experiential learning is another big focus. Students tag horseshoe crabs and sea turtles; they tap maple trees and make their own syrup. Students do team building exercises on the ropes course in the school's 35-acre nature preserve.</p> <p>The school's motto means "fortune favors the bold," and adminstrators stress that the Country School is a safe place to take risks.</p>
