Livingston Public Schools Reviews

The Livingston school system is rigorous and extremely competitive. Most graduates go to college, and are well-prepared for college. Getting into a good college is extremely important for most students. The teachers are motivated, inspired, understanding, and can be intense. Students can choose to take CP classes, which are sometimes too easy, or they can challenge themselves with Honors and AP classes, which are sometimes insanely difficult. The gap between each level makes it difficult to switch between them. I take a mixture of the different levels, but many students choose to go "all or nothing." Many students are stressed out from taking too many high level courses, and they spend all of their time studying. It is easy to get caught up in the competition of the students. The learning experience is great, but the stress can be contagious.
Livingston high school was overall great accademically and really helped me prepare for college. However, the social climate was absolutely terrible. Bullying was extreme in Livingston High School, and the administration, guidance counsellors and teachers did absolutely nothing to help change that. There were very few teachers in livingston that were truly supportive of the students well being while most focused on testing and grades.
Livingston High School is an excellent schools. Most of the teachers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic at what they do. Livingston is also highly ranked in the state of NJ, and most of the students strive to do well. Some minor flaws exist, however, it is a great school to attend.
