Choices and ChallengesUpper School provides a rigorous academic experience in a fully supportive atmosphere.
English electives include topics that would make challenging undergraduate seminars: Modern Voices of Minority Experience, Shakespeare, American Expatriates and the 1920s.
For mathematics and computer studies, two courses are offered beyond the two-year sequence in calculus.
The history department offers courses in art history, economics, geography, government, history, philosophy, and religion, a diverse offering ensuring that students develop a global outlook.
Language students are able to reach a level of fluency that allows them to study literature in French, Latin, Chinese or Spanish.
In the sciences, sophisticated instruments and software allow lab teams to focus on analysis and understanding. In fact, Princeton Day School students often perform experiments presented only as instructor demonstrations at many colleges.
Along with these challenges come choices—in electives, extracurricular activities, even advisors—allowing each PDS student to shape a unique educational experience.
And when it's time to move on, students can rely on college counselors for help finding opportunities matching their interests, aptitudes, goals and personality. We are proud of the ability and diversity of PDS graduates.
