    Lawrence Township provides students with opportunities to succeed in and out of the classroom at the highest level while providing a real world cultural experience. With high schools competitive nationally in both performing arts and athletics, middle schools that offer programs dedicated to fluency in Spanish, and elementary schools with specialties ranging from art to science, Lawrence Township offers a plethora of avenues in which students can differentiate themselves and excel while doing so. The demographics of Lawrence Township mimic that of the real world and the schools and community are outwardly inclusive of all ethnic backgrounds and cultures. Having attended Lawrence Township schools from kindergarten through high school, I truly believe that I was aptly prepared for college and the real world ahead.

    there are a lot of bad people in this school district. the students can be very loud and mean but i think thats the same for a lot of schools. in the Lawrence township school district. you'll fin administrators that don't understand that people have to actually live in a world that follows their stupid rules. the administration plays god and doesn't have to live with the consequences. but the reason i rate the school district so highly is because of the teachers. in more cases than not, the teachers at my school genuinely car about their students.
    Lawrence Township overall has had it's ups and downs. The school system has offered me incredible academic and extra curricular opportunities that I know are not offered everywhere, such as IB and Tri-Hi-Y. Also, I believe the rich diversity in all aspects (i.e. race, background, subjects taught) has made me a much more understanding and rounded person than I would have been had I belonged to a different community. However, I have had some poor experiences with teachers that are not as highly qualified as I would like. One of my IB teachers did not seemed well equipped for the rigor, rules, and overall atmosphere of the IB program, and I think it may have negatively affected my results. Overall, I can't imagine having grown up in any other district. This is my home.
