    "I really enjoyed the faculty and student relationship. As a private school, the student gets a lot more attention. But at PDS in particular, the teachers care about the student growing academically and also as a person. Rather than just teaching you what you need to know, but how to effectively learn."

    "Excellent buildings and food and grounds. Everything you could need and the vast majority of people that are at PDS are helpful and intelligent. Most of the teachers are memorable and they teach you a lot. Administration is weak, and some teachers are extremely difficult to the point where only 6 students sign up for their courses."

    "Princeton Day School really prepared me for the next stage in my life. Not just academically, but in all aspects of becoming a successful young adult."

    "PDS has amazing resources and facilities, if you're willing to use them, and the english and history departments are great. Honestly, we're not really known for our sports, other than boy's hockey and lacrosse, but our arts programs are all highly rated and all the classes I've taken (and I've taken a bunch) are taught by knowledgable faculty and are a solid experience. If you want your child to come out of high school with great essay writing skills and a well-connected Alumni network send them to Princeton Day School. Past that, it's like any other well-endowed high school."

    "The facilities are very attractive, but programs lack academic strength in important areas even math and English (humanities for lower grades). The reason is that the curriculum lacks basic consistency, so the same subject in the same grade can cover totally different materials when taught by diffferent teachers. There is no syllabus for any class and some core classes lack textbooks. If you are lucky you may get a handful of great teachers but you might also get one of several lackluster ones. Sports are very mediocre. There is no hard-core training to excel. Overall the school seems complacent about its status in Princeton and lacks that vigor to drive excellence. College acceptances reflect very few Ivy or top tier acceptances - are commonly believed to be the result of a legacy or special connection. PDS does not encourage competition - forcing the playing field to stay uniform, but does cater to wealthiest parent demands."
