Peter grew up in the Midwest and graduated from New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. After graduating from Dickinson College with a history degree, Peter accepted a teaching position at The Rectory School. Peter was involved in many aspects of school life there: admissions, placement, history, basketball and lacrosse.

While finishing his master's degree at the University of Virginia, Peter worked part-time at the Collegiate School in Richmond, VA, as a history teacher and lacrosse coach. Peter and wife Caroline were on the faculty at the Tilton School where he was an admissions associate, college counselor and the head lacrosse coach. "Every day I draw on the variety of experiences I have had at different schools. My wife and I truly enjoy being a part of the Salisbury community. This is a special place with wonderful people that truly make a significant difference in boys' lives. We decided a long time ago that this was the type of school where we wanted to live and work."

During Peter’s tenure as the Director of Admissions he has done presentations at national conferences including NAIS, SSATB and IECA.

The Gilberts live in the Pugh House with their sons Amos and Caleb.
