My honors and AP teachers these past four years were amazing! They taught in very interesting ways and connected with each of their students, which helped all of us learn easier in the classroom. The staff is pretty good and very helpful. Other than the occasional fights, it's a great school.

The academics were awesome! I was involved in the AP and Honors courses which were awesome. As a freshman in college, I feel that they really prepared me for what to expect and how to work hard. The school itself has a lot of issues with fights and everything, but it is easy to stay out of it as long as you are with the right crowd.
I personally transferred to this school my junior year, and can say that the school can use more diversity. While the location of the school explains the culture, there should be more diversity, a heavier appreciation for the music/ arts department, and not as much resources should be put in for the NJROTC unit and athletic teams. The teachers were capable of teaching the curriculum, and the campus facilities are fine, but the overall character of the school needs to change. Also the amount of violence I witnessed there was disheartening.
