Peddie School Reviews

My son is now a senior at Peddie and it has been an amazing three years, thus far! Peddie is constantly striving to be the best in what they can offer the students. In our three years we have not only seen improvements in physical structures, but planning aimed at improving the overall community as well by means of outdoor and indoor spaces (new dorms and grounds, maker labs, social spaces, classrooms), coursework diversity and schedule finesses. Teachers typically go the extra mile to help bring out the best in your child. I am amazed at the young man my child has become and I know he will be successful in college and in life, with thanks to the great friends and mentors he has connected with at Peddie.

We are not a wealthy family and Peddie has really come through for us with financial aid. In fact, they are sending him to France for his Junior year through their Study Year Abroad program, and we aren't having to pay an extra dime for it.
We are from California, and at first I felt very apprehensive about sending my kid across country just for high school. After seeing his academic growth over the past two years, I know that there is no way he could have gotten such an excellent education anywhere here in San Diego county.
I remember during the interview (they interviewed me too) they said Peddie was interested in not just the brightest students, but kids who were just solidly good people, not kids who were competitive so much as cooperative. They look out for each other and they encourage each other.
Without Peddie he would not be in a position to move half way across the world as a 16 year old. Thanks to Peddie and their super supportive faculty, my kid is living the dream!
My daughter has had such great experiences at Peddie. She feels loved and supported by the faculty, she has tried so many new activities and discovered new passions, and she appreciates being in a community where students from all over the world come together to study and live. Most importantly she will do great in college, as she has gained a great confidence, ability to thoughtfully interact with others, and amazing study skills. We are so thankful to this school!
