Collaboration among teachers happens in most high schools, but it occurs at an extraordinary level at Peddie. Teachers are encouraged to work closely together, share ideas with one another, and collaborate both in their own discipline and across departments.
We offer 150 courses and 34 subject areas for AP and Honors. Our curriculum covers the major disciplines (arts, English, history, language, math, science)—and then it takes off: offerings in neurobiology, robotics, genetics. Classes like Green Architecture, Financial Markets and Investment, Modern India. We develop new courses every year. And we’re always thinking of ways to adapt courses to new information and new ideas, include hands-on experience and apply coursework in the real world.
A successful educational journey is not just about being able to recite the correct answers. It's about being able to think about what is being studied in a critical and careful way, and even more, to develop one's own voice to learn and express it with confidence. We have learned this at Peddie. Pras Hongladaromp '02
After more than a year of research and planning, the Peddie math department replaced its traditional Geometry/Algebra II sequence with Mathematical Problem Solving (MPS) I and II. The courses blend topics from algebra and geometry and strongly emphasize collaboration and analytical thinking.
