Start Your Journey

Princeton Junior School's expertise in students from age 2 through Grade 5 creates globally-minded, empowered and joyful learners. Our International Baccalaureate curriculum launches a life-long journey of inquiry, action and reflection. PJS students learn to be principled, open-minded communicators with rich academic strengths and strong character traits. Our faculty emphasize that meaningful work requires rethinking, revising and polishing. Time to take risks and be innovative is afforded in daily learning. Students are given significant opportunities for public presentation with immediate, direct and thoughtful feedback. Our graduates leave PJS as young scholars, ready to lead their own learning with confidence and purpose.

Praise for PJS

After only one year at Princeton Junior School, our daughter is confident and disciplined. She is willing to work hard, keeping a goal in mind and always acting as a team member. She is assertive yet respectful of others opinions and needs.

- Diana Gonzalez

The International Baccalaureate program has given our children a wonderfully diverse education and a real appreciation of the world around them.

- Rebecca Lustenberger

Beyond the warmth and support our entire family found at PJS, our son also developed a strong sense of who he is and a love of learning that has helped him to excel in middle school.

-Bert Russick

I felt like PJS had breathed life back into a child who had fallen out of love with learning. PJS, simply put, was the ‘right fit’. 

Yinka Akinlawon

We came to PJS in 2010, when our twins started Kindergarten, and we continue to be impressed by the lengths to which the faculty go for their students. 

- Brian Hayes

When I think of my family and reflect on our experience at this school, one word comes to mind: home.
