Extremely academic-intense school; wonderful community of kids, teachers and coaches. I get a great feeling whenever I am on campus, I wish I could go to high school again and go to Peddie School.

My son is having an amazing experience at Peddie. He takes pride in his school and works extremely hard. This school is not for everyone. Kids need a lot of stamina as they will be very busy with the heave coursework, athletics. School demands a high level of personal responsibility from it's students.

My son is attending Peddie School this year as a freshman. From the very first day he loved the school. All students were very respectful and the teachers are exceptional. All teachers strongly encouraged after school help if student needed it. All teachers live on campus. Wonderful school.

This is a wonderful school. Not for every child. Academics are extremely difficult. Work load is intense and athletics are competitive. Safe and caring of all children. Strict on discipline and manners. An excellent college prep school. No snobs here.

My son is a sophomore and I was very worried about him boarding. Not anymore. You will not find a better school. The headmaster is wonderful, the support of the staff is excellent and the kids are great! It has been a great investment in my son's education

My son is a sophomore at Peddie. What a great experience thus far. The teachers and staff are fantastic. The curriculum challenging. The selection of AP courses is great. They just constructed a new state-of-the art science building and are in progress of redoing the history house.

My daughter attended the Peddie School She had an amazing experience there. She was a student from a prestegious Manhattan school and the level of education was comparable. The care from the teachers, dorm support and principal leadership is hard to find. She is now in Philadephia and keeps contacts with her friends. Has been on the honor roll and was very well prepared for college. Many of the problems that teens get into did not happen here as faculty and sports coaches kept students too busy to want to be involved. If you have the good fortune and manage to get your child in this school you will indeed be lucky. mhk

My daughter is a graduate of this school and received a wonderful education (academically) and truly superior overall educational experience. She continued her education at a very southern college and is now in the medical profession. Peddie gave her the basis to achieve her academic and professional goals.
