Aerial Tour of Campus

Tour the Kindergarten in 360°


Our sunny Kindergarten building features two spacious homerooms; a community space with a stage, kitchen, ample storage, and an indoor garden; and our innovative Kindergarten Idea & Design (K.I.D.) lab for makerspace/hands-on discovery. Plus, right outside the building is an outdoor learning area, Peck's sports court, and the Kindergarten playground!

Tour The Peck Commons in 360°


The Peck Commons (our new building and community hub) houses our light-filled dining room, state-of-the-art kitchen, and a spacious multipurpose/theater space. Go one level down and you'll find a theater green room, Peck's InDeCoRe lab, two large music rooms, breakout practice rooms, our school store and gently-used uniform "swap shop," and an outdoor amphitheater.

Tour The Higgins Library in 360°


Our library is a flexible learning commons for grades K-8. In addition to abundant book stacks, the library houses breakout rooms, a Harkness discussion room, a green room for multimedia projects, and flexible furniture for study or quiet reading time. Additionally, the library's dedicated story room is an inviting place for storytime with our librarian and exhibition space for student projects.

InDeCoRe at The Peck School

The award-winning InDeCoRe (Individual Development and Community Responsibility) program at Peck is one of the most significant, yet intangible, aspects of our school. This is a culture—it is the way we live out the part of our mission that calls on us to prioritize consideration of others.

This 
video unveils the new set of values that encompass InDeCoRe: care, gratitude, resilience, courage, respect, and one rotating value to be decided upon by the rising eighth-grade class each year. We hope this video helps bring to life the essence of the InDeCoRe culture of The Peck School.
