School Notes:

Princeton Junior School’s curriculum meets the highest standards for knowledge and skills that students should acquire in Pre-school and Kindergarten through Grade V. The curriculum is developed to challenge each student at his or her stage of development. At the core of all teaching at PJS is the belief that effective written and oral communication skills are essential. In our teaching, we attempt to balance the conceptual and the concrete by giving children opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills to real-life situations. Our aim is to graduate self-confident, responsible and independent students who enthusiastically revere life and learning, in a global society. We are currently an IB PYP candidate school.
