Vision

The Pennington School is committed to developing individual excellence in all of its students.

LORI — WHAT DOES THIS DEPICT?
Students begin their march before Commencement.

Our Students fully engage in the Pennington experience. They seek personal excellence and aspire to lives of dedication, perseverance, resilience, integrity, and service.

Our Faculty members unreservedly commit themselves to our students and their optimal learning and understanding. Passionate about their professional discipline, they are dedicated to staying current with best practices and pursuing professional development. Our faculty members serve as mentors and role models, forming meaningful relationships with students both inside and outside the classroom.

Our Parents share a sense of responsibility for the well-being and development of our students and actively support the School’s mission.

Our Academic and Co-curricular Environment combines high expectation for excellence with the means to help each individual student achieve success in preparation for college study.

Our Preparation for college and life centers on our students’ developing sound habits of mind, effective communication skills, ethical decision making, a global perspective, and the self-confidence to think and act both independently and collaboratively.

Our Community believes that the classroom is sacred and understands that optimal learning takes place through multiple experiences. Our culture reflects an abiding belief in each student’s desire and ability to learn. Our students develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, for others, and for the world in which they live. Our community is one of inclusion, open to diversity of opinions and people, united in our purpose, and dedicated to continuing the values of humility, virtue, and honor.
