Three Schools, One Poly.

The mission of Polytechnic School is to develop the intellect, talents, and character of each student in a community of learning dedicated to principles of academic excellence that values the uniqueness and dignity of each member and fosters personal responsibility and service to others.

At Polytechnic School...

Three divisions — Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools — work together to create a cohesive educational experience across all grades. Our three divisions are united in their dedication to shared values, including vigorous scholarship and a heartfelt desire to make a difference in the world. Our K-12 model enables the Poly faculty to create a richly layered array of programs that encompass academics, arts, physical education and athletics, global engagement, and service to the greater Pasadena community.


  • We are committed to honesty, justice, charity, and the pursuit of knowledge.

  • We respect the dignity and worth of all human beings—their thoughts, their feelings, and their individuality.

  • We seek to celebrate the joy, the love, and the creativity that emanate from the human spirit.

  • We strive to be responsible and contributing members of our families, our school community, and the world.
