By promoting accountability, collaboration, equity and integrity we strive to foster growth and success for every student.

    School Philosophy

    At Princeton School we believe that having high academic and behavioral expectations will produce a learning community dependent on collaboration and collective responsibility for our community. This will enhance student achievement and lead to greater success for all teachers, leaders, and learners.

    Along with this, the active involvement of parents plays a pivotal role in our students' confidence and willingness to take risks in their learning. We also know that the most importnat learning opportunities often happen at home.  Princeton is a community school that is committed to providing a meaningful, challenging educational experience.  

    Princeton School has a dedicated staff, enthusiastic children, and a warm community all committed to creating a stimulating and positive learning environment.  Along with a strong focus on academics, students learning is enriched through various activities and special events supported by active staff, students, and parents.

Welcome to another great year of learning! At Princeton, we truly believe that every one of
us in this building is a learner, a teacher, and a leader. Our staff and our students all
constantly work hard, try new things, get feedback on our progress, refine our work and our
actions, do it again, and move to the next steps in our learning journey.

Everyone’s journey is unique. We challenge each other to be the best we can be. We
accept our own strengths and weaknesses. We celebrate success, and ensure our mistakes
are seen as learning opportunities. Mistakes are an essential part of our learning journey.
We try, we take a risk, we learn, we move forward. We learn together and alone, with
feedback, and with perseverance. We give back to our learning community.
Part of our journey is the need for students to be accountable for their own conduct and for
the development of positive relationships with others. We assume responsibility for
ourselves as learners, we teach others about respect and personal space, and we lead by
example. Positive relationships create an excellent learning atmosphere. Let all learn, let all
teach, and let all lead!

Each journey is much more than a list of simple facts. Students need to be competent in
many areas and will be tasked with solving the problems of today, while imagining and
creating a new tomorrow. Critical thinking, collaborating, managing information, and
developing cultural and global citizenship are all vital. These competencies are essential to
equip our students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they will need to navigate
their personal journeys successfully.

Each journey starts when you walk through a door. Together with our community, we unlock
the doors to our future successes and learning opportunities. When we all do this together,
just imagine the possibilities!
