Welcome to Princeton International School. We are after excellent learning and teaching, learning for life, education – but most of all we care passionately about the children. Princeton International School is a unique and vibrant place filled with the energy of inquisitive minds and the dynamics of individual characters. We know that children have an array of differing needs, both educationally and emotionally, but they also have an exciting variety of dreams, hopes and aspirations. Your children and their successes are at the heart of all that I and my staff commit to Working with the skilled Princeton International School staff of today and the future, I am confident that we will realize and further develop the vision and philosophy that was the founding bedrock of the school. We strive for academic excellence in a well-disciplined, friendly and supportive community which encourages all learners to succeed. We believe that if children feel happy and secure they will flourish and grow as individuals, whether through academic and pastoral engagement in the enriched curriculum during and after school, or through our focus on shared values and the Princeton way. When you walk through our corridors, I am sure that you will feel and see that sense of delight and diligence but also awe and wonder on the faces of our children. Children at Princeton International School enjoy learning rather than enjoy coming to school. In addition, they have positive attitudes to learning. They are confident, friendly, happy, well-motivated and lively in their outlook and in their approach to all that they do. They also demonstrate a strong sense of pride in their school. There is, without doubt, a palpable feeling of community spirit and co-operation between staff, students, parents and our wider community. At Princeton International School, we understand that education is about guiding and supporting young people on a pathway of success: my staff and I are confident that each child in our care will unlock and realize that potential and indeed, aspire beyond with our support. We also recognize that education is a shared responsibility between family and school and we truly value the partnership that we forge with our parents.
