Mastering the middle years

In Upper School (Grades 5-8), we recognize that character, fulfillment, and academic achievement are inextricably linked. Peck teachers regularly reinforce the social skills necessary for long-term academic success, skills like collaboration, responsibility, conflict management and resolution, balance, and self-advocacy.

At Peck, students build and sustain strong relationships with teachers, coaches, and peers, and pursue their interests with increasing autonomy, creativity, and curiosity.

Why 5-8 at Peck?



Peck helped structure my organizational skills, which turned out to be a major advantage in transitioning to the rigor of high school life.
