School Notes

  • Stuart is an independent K-12 school in Princeton, New Jersey, founded in 1963, just for girls. We believe that in developing the mind, body and spirit together, a Stuart education produces young women leaders who think critically, creatively and ethically. Our challenging curriculum takes advantage of the way girls learn in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and math-as well as the arts, humanities and athletics. Stuart graduates go on to become confident, intelligent and articulate agents for positive change in our world.

Stuart is an OUTSTANDING school. I have had one daughter go through the entire program and another one in the middle school now. We couldn't be happier with the results for our children! The academics are rigorous, the faculty and staff amazing and the facilities are terrific. When my oldest got to college (a highly-selective, top-rated college in NE) her comment to us was "I wish more of my new classmates had a chance to have gone to Stuart". In addition to the world-class education, Stuart is VERY focused on developing the next-generation of women leaders - and they make it happen! In short, if you are thinking about Stuart, don't hesitate!

We have daughters in the lower and middle school at Stuart. Although our daughters have very different personalities, strengths, and weaknesses, both have thrived. Initially we chose the school because of the strong academics, however, we also benefited from the variety of programs offered at Stuart. The social emotional learning, the Sacred Heart Network, STEM programs, and the community created inside and outside the walls of Stuart are just a few examples of what sets Stuart girls apart.

The decision to send our daughter to middle school at Stuart, a decision made entirely by her mother, was the best educational/character development decision we have ever made on behalf of any of our five children. She is growing up right in front of our eyes!
