Livingston Board of Education School District Reviews

In general, I would say this school is challenging. Even if you take CP, the classes are really hard: this is mainly because of the teachers who bombard the students with homework and assessments. This caused me a lot of stress because it got really overwhelming really quickly since it all piles up. However, if you take advantage of it the academics are really great although it is really competitive. Something also of note is the student body. This school is very cliquey which makes it hard to make friends and maintain a good social life along with the mass amounts of work. Also, the guidance department isn't that helpful especially surrounding the topic of college applications. This makes everything very hard. The only good thing I would say about this school is the academics and some teachers who were willing to spend time to really help the student.

I enjoyed the great teaching and programs provided by the Livingston Board of Education. There were great teachers and administration that helped along the way. The only problem that I came across in my years is that at times when reasoning with the administration, at times the logic of the student and viewpoint will win over the administrator, but instead of exonerating the student of their punishment it is carried out because "something has to be done."
Livingston Board of Education offers a variety of courses and clubs that make it easy to find your interests early. In addition, the course work is challenging and prepares their students for college life. Being a freshman in college, a lot of my peers struggle with study skills and time management. I am grateful that Livingston Public Schools well prepared me with the tools necessary to ease the transition from High School to College.
