Princeton Day School Reviews

By a Current Student on

I have to disagree with "Parent: Have to agree with previous review. School has misplaced emphasis on diversity; majority of students are lower-income on financial aid. Our middle-class white kid felt so left out we had to take her out. Teaching quality on decline. No one wants to come here anymore except minorities." because most of the students attending PDS are white, and on the wealthier side socioeconomically, there are VERY few children who attend PDS on financial aid. Also I think the teaching quality is excellent at this school, the teachers are very willing to help students, and are quite flexible and understanding. And honestly there is no bullying at PDS and no exclusive cliques are present.

Excellent. Not sure what these other two reviews are talking about. As for diversity: welcome to higher education. Most good colleges are ethnically diverse with a lot of Asians and south Asians. If that intimidates your child than yes, don't bother. Otherwise if you have an open mind and arent "afraid" of a school that's not as white as rice, you will not be disappointed.

Have to agree with previous review. Princeton Day School has a misplaced emphasis on diversity; the majority of students are lower-income on financial aid. Our middle-class white kid felt so left out we had to take her out. Teaching quality is on the decline. No one wants to come here anymore except minorities.

Just toured this school. Ugliest campus I have seen. Kids looked unkempt, yawning in class. One thing you notice almost immediately is there there are very few boards showcasing student work. It's supposed to be a really good school. First impression - not impressed.

My son is new, but loves this school.  The level of instruction is excellent.  The faculty and students are welcoming.  We had applied to a number of other private schools in Nj.  We found that while many have excellent academics, non came close to the personal, warm feeling that we received at PDS.
I would higl recommend this school.
