WELCOME TO OUR NEXT MONTESSORI MORNING OPEN HOUSE
Saturday December 14th, 2019 at 10:30am.
As we continue our work on the strategic plan goals for program excellence, a very important event specifically designed for parents to understand the unique benefits of our Montessori program is the Saturday Morning Open House.
With academic support and challenge firmly in mind, we hold the Open House in order for you to explore what is in store for your children once they enroll into our Montessori Program. You will get a window into the curriculum, teachers, and lives of our students at Princeton Preparatory Schools.
WELCOME TO PRINCETON!
We want to welcome all the new families and teachers at Princeton Preparatory this semester. Thank you for choosing to make our school your home.

In October 2016, Princeton Preparatory Schools organized its very first International Night event. The purpose was to celebrate the variety, complexity, and uniqueness of cultures from all over the world. Princeton Preparatory Schools students and their families have come to love these nights which are usually a celebration of culture with international food, clothes, music and dance.
This purpose has grown to encompass peace curriculum topics and continues to promote tolerance, cultural sensitivity, and acceptance of individual differences. In celebrating these cultures, our children recognize and develop an appreciation not only for the geographical and cultural characteristics of other countries, but also for the diversity and similarities that we all share.
