Teachers are very supportive in this school district. Extra help is almost always available. Most teachers are also very kind, but strict in the teaching of the subject.

There are many sports, including basketball, baseball, soccer, track, swimming, golf, etc.

The school have a variety of foods served for breakfast and lunch. Includes a special that changes everyday

Also an academically gifted school. Many math, science, technology, art, foreign language awards. Several APs offered including AP Foreign language (Spanish, French, Chinese, Italian) AP Economics, AP Computer Science, etc. (High School)

However, diversity is somewhat limited as the student make up is mostly white and Jewish. There are some Asians, African Americans, and Hispanics.

Many clubs offered, including Key Club, Viral Club, Meditation Club, National Honor Societies, etc. (High School)

Lots of resources. Laptops are given to every student from elementary to high school.
Review Livingston Public Schools
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.
