At the high school level Pingry provides an excellent combination of strong academics a supportive environment excellent faculty and varied extracurriculars. The students are motivated high achievers and expectations are set accordingly but the school has put in place a strong support system including daily conference periods during which students are encouraged to meet with teachers one-to-one. While most students participate in athletics and many achieve in their sport at a high level a wide range of extracurriculars and talents are valued by the community; it's not a sports-above-everything environment. While many students come from extremely affluent families the school deserves credit for its efforts to create a diverse student body.
Overall a great school. Dedicated teachers and staff and wonderful student body. As many other private schools students tend to come from wealthy upper-middle income families. Excellent liberal arts curriculum. The school's strength is primarily in humanities in comparison its math and science is not as strong however.
I am a faculty member at Pingry. I am amazed at the student motivation and desire to learn. I find it a wonderful environment in which to teach and I feel lucky to be part of this wonderful community of learners and people continuing to better themselves (students and faculty). I also want to add that the school is motivated to create a more diverse and understanding environment through workshops assemblies and important group discussion. Overall from my end a fantastic place!!
My son went to school here after struggling at public school (because of the kids he was friends with for the most part). He was very bright but lacked motivation. There was no way for him not to be motivated at Pingry. The faculty are intelligent dedicated and for the most part entertaining in class. The class sizes are small and the teachers get to know every one of their students. Because of the relatively small enrollment nearly every student in the school is involved in sports and/or music. And the emphasis on honor and respect is unflagging. You could not find a better school--as with most schools there will always be hurdles to overcome for every student and family but there are very few here.
Great academic program. The teacher and student involvement are very good. You will work with kids your level (if you make the admission).
