Having moved from Boston, both of our children enrolled at PDS--our son entered into the ninth grade Upper School program and our daughter, into the Middle School program as a fifth grader. Both kids were encouraged to participate in a broad range of activities in their respective divisions: theater, sports, science exploration, and material and visual arts. Every day they worked with outstanding facult, and, as the years passed, they each worked at PDS, too. During high school, both worked at the Princeton Day summer camp--first as junior counselors and, having enrolled in one of the little Ivies, each returned as lead counselor. During one of those lovely summers at home from college, our son, upon returning from a day of work at PDS, said," I can't believe I got to go to PDS!" That pretty much sums up our whole family's PDS experience. Smart, creative faculty; a wide range of athletic choices; exceptional arts programs; and a run in the PDS woods at the end of the day!
