I am honored to lead the Princeton Junior School community. Young children are creative, curious, and excited about learning new things. At PJS, we nurture these innate abilities and encourage them so that our students flourish and grow, from preschool onward.
At Princeton Junior School , early childhood is celebrated, honored, and protected. Our toddler students enjoy a variety of safe, age-appropriate educational and enriching activities, overseen by an exceptional team of teachers and staff. We are dedicated to small class sizes, developing the whole child, and helping each child achieve their full potential.
Our K-5 curriculum gives each child a profound appreciation for world literature, history, mathematics, science, writing, foreign language, fine arts, and technology. Children develop poise and self-confidence at a very early age in a warm environment designed especially for this age group. Our teachers are devoted to the success of each student, and our fifth grade graduates go on to the finest middle schools in the area, often to their first choice of school. Your child will be fully prepared to move on as a confident, caring, and responsible young citizen.
Our Reggio inspired preschool and elementary programs are both led by an exceptional faculty who care deeply about education and the children they teach. Dedicated, experienced, and inspiring, they help bring out the special gifts of each child.
The PJS family shares many traditions and rituals, from our annual All-School Picnic early in September to our Founders' Day maypole celebration in the spring. So please come and visit our historic, beautiful Princeton Junior School campus. It has been designed to be a living classroom and sanctuary for inquiring minds to become good stewards of the world around them.
Whether in the classroom, on the playing fields, or in the McIntyre Commons (our village square), each child's day is built around an atmosphere of trust and respect for one another. Described as "a miniature United Nations," Princeton Junior School boasts a extraordinary, culturally diverse population that allows each child the opportunity to appreciate and celebrate our differences. It is just one example of the magic you can find in our small school.
I invite you to spend some time with us and witness firsthand the many wonders of Princeton Junior School - truly one of the best private preschools and elementary schools in the Princeton, NJ, area!
With all best wishes,
Head of School
