Edison Township School District Reviews

At John P Stevens High School, there is a lot of pressure to be the top student. On top of academics, this includes being the best in the performing arts, getting involved in clubs, as well as competing for out of school opportunities. While this may be motivating, it creates a somewhat toxic culture where students are willing to do anything to be the best, which sometimes includes scandals of students stealing exams. At the same time, the administration doesn't do much to reprimand the students who do so, only further encouraging the notion of doing anything besides studying to get the perfect scores.

The Edison Township School District offers a rigorous curriculum for students depending on the student's grades. However, the districts heavy emphasis on examination makes the learning process in this district very tiresome and not engaging what so ever. Besides academics, the school is very diverse and has many clubs to make students feel a part of the school community. Students are allowed to play any of the available sports like tennis, soccer, track, baseball, softball, and etc. Also, the band program at both schools are very advanced and earn national recognition as marching band and jazz ensembles.
Edison Highschool is a diverse community that I am proud to be a part of. The mix of different types of people allows me to realize unique perpectives of others and how they perceive various situations. However, the administration is close-minded and fail to empathize with students and consider each's situation. I feel that they must do a better job at understanding students' academic needs by having teachers create customized lesson plans for each pupil. They need to teach not force them to regurgitate information.
