About the Peck School
The Peck School is a coed, K-8, independent school in Morristown, NJ. Since its founding in 1893, Peck has stood for excellence in education. While Peck prides itself on rigorous academic programs, it is committed to developing students with a strong sense of community and moral responsibility. In 2015, under the leadership of the new Head of School, Andrew Delinsky, Peck embarked on a thoughtful and inclusive process to define a vision for continued excellence grounded in Peck’s proud history and traditional values. The resulting strategic plan and subsequent master plan outlined the evolution of a successful Peck School model, one that strengthens its programs and reimagines its facilities in the spirit of academic excellence with a continued emphasis on the importance of fostering connections and building community. This plan requires significant investment to reimagine Peck’s campus facilities and to support a vibrant, innovative and integrated learning community.
