Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

The Peck School inspires students to learn rigorously, grow in character, and lead healthy, productive, and principled lives. 

Vision Statement

The Peck School sets the standard for excellence in K-8 education, where academic preparation and character development intersect powerfully in the learning experience. By embedding consideration of others, service, and belonging in all that we do, we are designing an integrated approach to education that develops curious and disciplined learners who positively shape the world.

Core Principles

Our core principles guide not only our work with students but also how we engage with one another as adults in the community, including as colleagues, parents, and alumni.

List of 3 items.

  • Rigorous Learning

    We value rigor as the courage to think deeply and creatively, to embrace challenges, and to persevere. We commit to hard work and curiosity as a foundation for strong character and life-long learning. 
  • Community Responsibility

    We value our shared responsibility to lift each other up and to care for our school, our community, and our world.
  • Consideration of Others

    We value kindness, integrity, and empathy in our relationships and our individual actions.  The appreciation of the dignity and gifts in both ourselves and in others is essential to learning and to a culture of belonging.
