North Plainfield School District Reviews

I have been a student in the district of North Plainfield since pre-school. Now being a High School Senior, reflecting on my experience, I've always appreciated North Plainfield's diversity and culture. In about every friend group you will find students of all races, ethnicities, religions and cultures. I think its something extremely special about North Plainfield that gives their students a greater acceptance of people from different places. However, I do wish that North Plainfield does work on bettering their academics and college readiness for students efficiently. They have definitely shown effort, however are not providing students with enough resources to be successful after graduation.

North Plainfield School District is very diverse yet also very supportive of its people. Each student is free to share their talents and bless their classmates with their talents in our talent shows and cabarets and etc., so it creates a safe environment for creative and self-esteem building.
I would not change anything about the school except create and increase better food choices. Healthier food choices should be incorporated.
NPHS is overall an average high school. My experience has been full of pretty big high's but also pretty big lows. The administration has been overall average in addressing my issues and concerns and from my experience require parent involvement in order to be as efficient as possible. As to be expected school lunch tastes pretty bad and isn't always the most healthy of foods. However, I feel academically, I have recieved a lot of opportunities, largely due to the teachers. North Plainfield is an extremely diverse town, so I wasn't surprised that NPHS was so diverse. Being exposed to many different cultures and ideas from across the world is something I really appreciate and is exclusive to NPHS when compared to the surrounding towns and high schools. I never really participated in sports but the events are always fun and clubs and activities are plentiful in NPHS. Overall, I feel a little behind in the college search and I've learned things that no one in the school told me.
