Peddie School Reviews

Peddie is the most welcoming school I have attended so far in my life. The academic curriculum is solid and demands for efficiency from individuals, but it is also not overwhelming to an extent that may cause incapability to finish certain assignments. In addition, student life is diverse and colorful in the sense that students are closely knit with one another and form close bonds through a brief period of time. As a boarding student, I was able to so meet so many people I would not have met as a day student. The more outgoing I was, the better off I became in understanding the school community as well as connecting effectively with others. I made so many friends through plenty of interactions. Attending Peddie has been quite the memorable experience!
Review Peddie School
Peddie has multiple programs in place that benefit the health and safety of students. We have a Health Center which operates 24-hours of the day with friendly nurses, sick-rooms, and various medications. If a student is ever feeling unwell, they can either walk or call for a ride over there at any time. For mental health, Peddie has a student services center that includes *FREE* counseling!

Additionally, Peddie has a security team that is present on campus at all times. There are multiple security cameras in place, too, which they can view on monitors. Also, there are fob readers on all dorms so only a student in possession of a fob can get into residential buildings.
I have 2 students at Peddie. It has been an amazing place for them. Peddie has a warm, embracing family feel. Not only are their academics top notch, but the school really cares about the whole person, a well rounded student. My experience with the teachers has been outstanding. Any time I have had a question or concern, Peddie instructors go out of their way to help me, providing very detailed and thoughtful responses and guidance that demonstrate they truly know, understand and care for my children. The health center at Peddie has been top notch and includes a mental health center with free counseling to help the kids stay strong and deal with the many anxiety causing issues facing teens today. The students are welcoming, diverse, integrated and proud of their community. I love the experience Peddie provides for my children.
