Peddie School Reviews
I had a great experience at Peddie. The school was a perfect fit for me in all aspects of life. The academics challenged me but I was able to grow as a student from them. The school has a small tight-knit community which promotes the friendly and accepting energy that the students embody. The boarding aspect gives teenagers a strong sense of independence and responsibility, something that will be necessary once they begin their college education. The fact that the majority of faculty members live on campus also adds to the sense of community that Peddie has. Tecahers are available for extra help with school work throughout the entire day, not just during the school day. They work hard with their tudents to give them the best chance of success!
I went to a boarding school which is ranked higher than Peddie. My daughter goes to Peddie. She is thriving academically, athletically and socially. It is a very high spirited school with so many resources to engage a multitude of differing student interests. The academics are excellent and the faculty is extremely helpful. The administration makes swift changes when things aren't going smoothly. I am a huge fan. Peddie is the best!
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!
