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.
