Our History

We welcome you to comb through our history to learn more about us. What you'll find is a School community rooted in the joyful pursuits that are made possible when faculty members really get to know the students they teach. In the years since Dr. John Gale Hun opened the Princeton Math School, much has changed, but the important stuff hasn't.

Meet Our Alumni

At Hun, you'll find a community of learners who celebrate and champion the successes of their peers, both during their years at Hun and in the years after graduation. Just as Dr. Hun did, we encourage our students to explore careers that fuel their passions and we delight in cheering them on beyond their time on Edgerstoune Road.
