At Princeton Day School, the pursuit of excellence is a cooperative process nurtured by an outstanding faculty.
Our experienced teachers believe in creating a classroom atmosphere where the learning process is valued.
At PDS, the classroom extends beyond the walls of the school house and is equally regarded on the fields, courts, ice, and stage. We believe in a diversity of cultures, views and talents for the growth and moral development of our students.
The world-class faculty believes strongly in professional growth and development, and teachers routinely receive in-service training, participate in conferences, attend graduate courses, and travel for enrichment opportunities — all fully supported by the school.
Penn Fellows at PDS
In 2016, the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education invited Princeton Day School to become one of the first among a select consortium of the nation’s leading independent day and boarding schools to partner on a groundbreaking teaching residency program. The Day School Teaching Residency Program (DSTR) enables carefully chosen, aspiring educators to receive a master’s degree in education from Penn while completing an intensive, two-year teaching fellowship on independent school campuses.
Grounded in theory and practice, the DSTR Program at PDS allows Penn Fellows to experience a strong and comprehensive theoretical foundation and the immersive practice of their pedagogy in a supportive PreK-12 teaching environment. Penn Fellows work closely with experienced PDS teacher-mentors who not only support them in their personal educator journeys, but also guide and coach them through their pedagogy.

Miss Fine's Center for Interdisciplinary Studies
Dedicated to the committed faculty members who have advanced the school’s mission to deliver excellence in teaching in an ever-changing world, Miss Fine's Center promotes the collaborative study of topics and themes that demand and benefit from an interdisciplinary approach.
Established in 2014 and endowed through the generosity of Kenneth L. Wallach and Susan Schildkraut Wallach ’64, the center provides ongoing financial support for professional development, travel and research for members of the faculty. Fellows selected engage in interdisciplinary work and share their findings with their faculty colleagues, as well as in forums beyond the school community, including national independent school conferences and other discipline-specific professional gatherings.
