Lower School

Dr. Thu-Nga Morris

Assistant Head of School K-12 and Lower School Director


Dr. Morris has served in an array of leadership, teaching, and student life roles prior to joining Pingry as Lower School Director in 2020. With experience overseeing curriculum design, instruction, and strategic academic programming, she has also developed remote learning programs.

Her deep understanding of how best to guide young learners on their journey through the Lower School, and her energy and passion epitomize the philosophy of the Short Hills campus: inspiring in children a lifelong commitment to learning, self-discovery, and social responsibility, and nurturing their growth in all facets of school life.


Dr. Thu-Nga Morris leans against stone wall.
