2014-2015 Student Handbook
Peddie has built its reputation on academic rigor, a friendly culture, and a focus on the whole student: mind, body and spirit. Our academic program continues to transform itself and grow in meeting the demands of an ever-changing world.
Pioneering the use of wireless technology and a discovery-based science program, the school has increasingly seen its mission as leading the future of American education. Over the last five years, we have increased our course offerings, particularly in the sciences, including new courses in forensics, DNA, neurobiology, robotics, physiology, evolution, genetics, quantitative chemical analysis, and organic chemistry. We have also added course offerings in arts, history and mathematics.
Recently, Peddie has embarked on a number of ambitious projects, including the expansion of the 16-year-old Chinese language curriculum into a world-class Asian Studies program. In preparing students for the world they will inherit, Peddie exposes them to languages and cultures that better position them to lead in an increasingly interdependent world.
Thanks to our small class sizes and wide variety of course options, students enjoy a unique opportunity to interact with each other and with their teachers. Our school provides an educational environment that is inclusive and supportive, what students need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.Download the Grade Conversion Chart
