The Peck School

247 South St, Morristown, NJ 07960

Founded and for many years conducted by Lorraine T. Peck, the school, upon his retirement in 1944, was incorporated by a group of parents, and the activities and the curriculum broadened. Located on a wooded, 14-acre campus, Peck emphasizes a traditional academic program. The acquisition of skills is stressed in English and mathematics, with enrichment in social studies, foreign language, science, and the fine and performing arts. French and Spanish instruction begins in kindergarten and is joined by Latin in grades 6-8. Math and languages are grouped into standard and honors sections in grades 7 and 8. Technology is fully integrated into the curriculum; students in grades 5 and 6 participate in a school-based laptop program, while those in grades 7 and 8 engage in a take-home laptop program. Upper school pupils belong to an advisory group of eight to nine students that meets twice a week. Physical education begins in kindergarten, and boys and girls choose from intramural (beginning in grade 3) and interscholastic (in grades 5-8) athletic programs.
