Our Mission and Vision

At Polytechnic School, we envision a community of students, inspired by transformative teaching, who will contribute profoundly to the world as intellectual leaders.

We develop the unique intellect, talents, and character of each student in a community dedicated to academic excellence, personal responsibility, and service to others.

From K to life…

Three divisions — Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools — work together to create a cohesive educational experience from kindergarten through 12th grade. There is a unity of vision, purpose, and shared values including vigorous scholarship and a heartfelt commitment to make a profound difference in the world. Poly offers a rich array of programs for the student community including academics, arts, athletics, global engagement, and service to the greater Pasadena community. From kindergartners to graduating seniors, every Poly student is celebrated and shares an authentic love of learning.
