Great environment! Staff and faculty was always very helpful and supportive when it came to helping students. Many different clubs to get involved in such as key club, student council, and baking club. The school is very community driven which makes the atmosphere at sporting events and academic events entertaining and fun. Students create a great student section for all sports but more for football, wrestling, and basketball. Great all around school

There are but simply two major characteristics of the Phillipsburg School District from preschool to elementary to high school levels, from living in Pburg all of my life and going to these schools, it is that (1.) the teachers are passionate and driven by student growth and (2.) the school body is very diverse— there’s all ethnicities, races, incomes, opportunities, kids that try really hard, and kids that don’t. A very mixed school, and a very compassionate and supportive teacher faculty.
My experience at Phillipsburg High School has brought me many new memories, friends, and everlasting friendships with teachers and classmates. I have grown as a not only a student but as an athlete and mentor for underclassman. I have learned the values of tradition, pride, teamwork, and sportsmanship throughout my time spent at Phillipsburg High School. I have been given many opportunities such as working on the Human Arm Cadaver alongside the Orthopedic Surgeon at St. Luke's Warren Hospital. I have also had the great honor of being chosen as a student worker at my school; which requires a maintained GPA and attitude throughout the school year. I have had the pleasure of running a campaign for the Lexi Faye Scholarship at Phillipsburg which had raised over four hundred dollars. Phillipsburg had not only taught me and my peers how to strive for greatness but it has also opened many doors and opportunities for all of us that we could never imagine.
