On July 1, 2019, Pingry welcomed its 16th Head of School, Mr. Matt Levinson, and his family into its community. He brought over 25 years of leadership experience in independent schools, having worn countless hats—from teacher, department chair, grade-level dean, administrator, coach, and counselor, among others. Mr. Levinson began his career at Princeton Day School in 1993, marking his return to the East Coast—after 12 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle—a homecoming.
"As an educator, my firm belief is that we need to enable every student to thrive in our community. We need to make sure that we build and sustain a sense of belonging and inclusion so that each child can bring their full self in a diverse community, coupled with the ability to explore and deepen intellectual passions and interests to foster lifelong learning. All of this happens in the hands of dedicated faculty and staff who maintain a singular focus on doing what is best for students. To me, this comes to fulfillment through our school motto: 'Greatest Respect Is Due Students.'"
