Message from our Head of School, Andy Delinsky
I’m thrilled with the progress we've made with The Peck Promise: The Campaign for Excellence | Elevated. Especially at this moment in time and in my tenure as Head of School, this phrase truly strikes a chord with me. In many ways, I see the fulfillment of our ambitious campaign goals as a promise to current Peck students and families, as well as to future generations to ensure Peck retains and only builds upon its commitment to excellence.
This journey actually began several years ago, when we engaged in a strategic planning process that focused on improving what is happening in the classroom – truly engaging our students, bolstering our math and science programs, strengthening the arts program, and underlying everything we do, enhancing community.
The resulting Strategic Plan
then served as the blueprint as we embarked on a Master Planning process. We gave our architects the direction to create spaces for design thinking and complex problem solving, and to fully leverage every square foot of existing space before even thinking of building anything new. Perhaps most importantly, we needed to ensure that everything we did was rooted in the academic program. They came up with a plan to completely reinvent our campus while remaining true to our time-honored traditions, and we are thrilled to see our new and reimagined spaces as a result of this important work.
And so our promise to you is that as we continue along this exciting path, we will keep our students at the center of everything we do while only elevating the sense of excellence for which Peck stands. While we embrace change and look forward to our great future, the heart of Peck remains the same.
With deepest gratitude,
