Article in The Educational Register, February 2013
Head of School Paul Stellato has written an article for The Educational Register, one of the leading websites about independent schools, published by VincentCurtis. Mr. Stellato’s article is titled “In Praise of Large Schools,” and begins, “I write in praise of large independent schools; of schools whose enrollments stretch to 700 students and beyond.... They are built upon the school-within-a-school model: two, three, or four divisions (junior, lower, middle, and upper schools), which are independent and yet informed by and share fully an institution-wide commitment to a set of values, virtues, and characteristics: the school mission.” As Mr. Stellato emphasizes, opportunity is the name of the game in a large independent school.

"The Princeton Day School’s mission – which you should read and know and take to heart – makes clear the role of each of us within the larger community, as we also it demands explore how we stand in kinship with our community. It values equally the individual and the community, careful not place one above the other. It speaks of things that are tough to argue against – truth, skill, commitment, character, integrity, responsibility. It is given life each day through one thing and one thing only: your actions. For each and all of us, it is never about getting something but always about becoming someone."
