Experience the Princeton Difference

Princeton Preparatory Schools is different in many ways. Our school’s foundation is built upon our unique Montessori teaching method, our focus on traditional Christian values and the importance we place on peace and nature studies. Moreover, we foster a high achieving multicultural community and environment in which students develop and excel. With this understanding in mind, we developed a list of the benefits of your child attending Princeton Preparatory Schools. These benefits are unique in our area, filling a need in North Atlanta neighborhoods that does not currently exist.

Music Program

We are pleased to offer two rich and engaging music programs at Princeton. Our World Music Program is a celebration of great music from around the world comprised of original songs and folk music. Children gather weekly to learn and sing classic folk songs. This is a highlight of the week for many children and adds to our environment the precious element of the sound of singing children.

 

Our Classical Music Studies in our Elementary Program introduces our children to the masters of classical music from around the globe, musical genres, composers, and the anatomy of an orchestra. Through stories and music, the children are introduced to the masters, one at a time. They learn about different styles and periods of music and learn about the details of the lives of the great composers and musicians.

Children begin to recognize composers’ works by listening and remembering details of the composers’ accomplishments and personal lives. 

CULTURAL STUDIES

Imagine a world where culture is not a barrier. Our cultural studies aim to foster an inquisitive and positive attitude towards other cultures. Culture plays an essential role in how children make sense of the world. Exposing young children to different cultures makes for a fun and exciting learning environment! The overall goal is to expose children to differences at an early age so that they can begin to appreciate and value them rather than to dismiss them. For example, December is spent on the theme “Christmas around the world." Our cultural classes have taken us to the Taj Mahal in India, to the great wall of China, the pyramids of Egypt, leaning tower of Pisa and many more places while in the comfort of our classroom.

Our Cultural Studies program has opened up access to a vast range of literature, history, traditions, food, music, philosophy and great interest of other cultures. This in turn has helped students to become less myopic in their views and more accepting of differences.

nature STUDIES

Children and nature go together, or should. Recent studies document the importance of introducing children to the natural world, beginning in the early years. Their social, emotional, and physical health depends on this exposure to develop. Being surrounded by nature and natural items provides infinite benefits to children. To observe nature requires patience and quiet watchfulness. Imagination comes into play as children create special places and use natural items to create stories and play. All senses become engaged when children interact with the natural world. At Princeton, we take regular nature walks around the downtown Kennesaw area as well as participate in various nature activities.

community service

Engaging in community service provides students with the opportunity to become active members of their community and has a lasting, positive impact on society at large. It enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide a service to those who need it most. There are many benefits for children participating in a community service program.
The option of doing community service gives children the opportunity to become contributors in society. We serve others in love (Galatians 5:13) because Jesus was the ultimate servant, laying down His life as a ransom so that we could experience freedom from sin and eternal life
(Mark 10:43b-45).

FAITH

Princeton Preparatory Schools is a place where there is opportunity for all children to be encouraged to grow in their knowledge, character, and especially in their love for God. In this way they are equipped to live for God's glory. The Christian life is modeled day to day, building a school community of grace and love.
Dr. Montessori developed the separate environment of the Atrium in 1910 – just three years after developing her initial classroom environment. Dr. Montessori remarked that it was in this space that her whole method came to its fruition.  She said it was the children who showed her that the activities they desired to engage with the most – the exercises for coordinated movement, the silence game, the activities within the practical life exercises - which they performed with the greatest concentration.
At Princeton, carefully thought out material is placed in the classrooms and whether we are learning about peace, biblical geography, the fruits of the Holy Spirit, kindness, sharing, or the parables of Jesus, these materials aid in the thought process and deeper understanding of the topic.

gardening

The road towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future must start with inspiring our children. They are going to inherit the earth, so it is important, firstly, that we leave them the world in better shape than we acquired it, and secondly, that children are enthused and excited about living ‘green’ lives while learning the value and ethics of every day work that we adults do. In short, it’s wise to start sooner rather than later!
 
Each fall, spring and summer, the students participate in gardening. Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is overlooked in standard school curriculum. Gardening is also a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature.
