I personally think that the Elizabeth district is great. This district provides a lot of opportunities, and facilities. Some of the opportunities which they offer are scholarships opportunities, a large variety of clubs with the opportunity to create a new one, low to no payment for state exams such as SAT and the ACT, reduce lunch and most of the time free lunch depending on the amount parents earn.
The City of Elizabeth is known for its diversity, gross population, historical background, transportation, trade system and economy. However, as a born and raised Elizabeth resident, I am proud to say Elizabeth Public Schools is one of the greatest districts in the tri-state area. In fact, I am a current Senior at Elizabeth High School. The academics, diversity, teacher/administration involvement, clubs and activities; and etc. play a major role in students upbringing and here at Elizabeth Public Schools teachers, students, and administrators do whatever they can to enforce it.
