I have had invaluable once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and experiences here and I have grown so much from my journey! Fair warning, it is pretty rigorous academically and, and especially a rather sharp learning curve if you enter after freshman year ,(I was a new sophomore) but, once you find or reach out to the necessary people, it'll make the adjustment so much easier. Though your schedule will most likely almost always be packed, that also means you have a plethora of opportunities to stretch and apply yourself, not just in fields that you cam into high school good at, but in new subject areas and co-curriculars you might have never even heard of before....

And oh, is school hard at Peddie! The typical school day is packed with a class of challenging math, a productive discussion in Humanities, lectures and labs in Chemistry, Biology or Physics, and more. Students can explore and succeed in a many fields including Computer Science, the Arts or an additional language. After school, students are engaged in a required extracurricular activity. Many students opt for sports, which all have practices in state-of-the-art facilities with the guidance of devoted coaches. I've been on the swim team for the past year, and have found team culture to be wonderful and supportive. Other activities include being in the cast or set crew of musicals, Robotics (FRC), and community service. Dorm life is great too, the lounges are open and spacious, and SNAs (Saturday Night Activities) are aplenty....

  4. Mustard Seed SchoolHoboken, NJ•Private School•PK, K-8•Rating 5 out of 5 12 reviewsParent: Our children have been attending MSS since preschool and they are now in Middle School! MSS offers a challenging, progressive, and stimulating academic curriculum, integrates moral development and faith seamlessly, and works to create "change makers" in all aspects of the school day. As a smaller school, it allows for a lower student to teacher ratio, giving our children increased confidence when asking questions, more time to engage in creative/valuable group activities, and allowing more opportunities for one-on-one time with the teachers. Teachers are top notch; passionate, calm, positive, bright, nurturing, insightful, and connected to their students. MSS works hard to create positive inter-personal relationships; community building is a top priority! MSS is a unique and special place; highly recommend MSS - it is definitely worth a visit to actually observe the "magic" unfold firsthand!...
