Mercer County Schools Reviews

Mercer County schools are amazing. Especially West Windsor Plainsboro High School North. They are second in the state, thus have a great educations system, and a safe environment. But, the place is very competitive. Students keep studying and getting good grades in the top priority, leaving no choice but to opt out of extra curriculur activities, such as clubs, sports, etc. The students are always stressed out, so that can be helped out, by reducing the amount of work that is piled upon them. Other than that, the school is great!

In Mercer County Schools, for example, Princeton Senior high school has some poor food and facilities at some times. The bathrooms were very poor and the food did not look the best. But they have improved immensely in the food but still need to work on their bathrooms. Academics and the teachers are all average for the most part. I believe Mercer County schools need to improve on getting to students ready for college because the lack the most in that category.
My experience with Mercer County Schools has been an interesting one. A lot of their policies simply do not work with the current times, and most administrators only care about what is easiest for themselves. We have had minimal school closings on snow days we needed to be home, and several accidents have been a result of this. Not to mention, they under pay their teachers which causes no one to even want to work in our state. I would like to see them turn everything around completely to benefit everyone.
