The total student enrollment for grades 9 through post-graduate is 530 students representing 28 countries and 21 states; 41% are students of color and 18% hold citizenship outside of the United States. Peddie welcomes individuals with diverse talents and backgrounds whose excitement, curiosity and character create an educational community where passion for learning grows.
