The Peck School preserves the simple joys of childhood—and creates an environment where your child can not only thrive academically, but can also be a child just a little longer. 

Why K-8? Our kindergarten through eighth-grade program helps kids live and learn in the moment without the looming distractions or social uncertainty that high school brings. We cater to young minds, fostering a smooth transition to adolescence with a specialized focus and a joyful environment. 


What attracted us to Peck was the Upper School curriculum and how it is intentionally designed around building the specific skills that are critical to developboth from an academic and character perspectivein preparation for secondary school.
