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

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.
The teachers don't coordinate the dates they will give out tests and give up to three or more during the same days. They all wait to wrap up the marking periods work during the last week making it difficult for all students to properly study in an efficient manner for all of their tests. This causes working to be very difficult as well which is why a large part of the school focuses on studies alone even if they need money for personal things like college. Many seniors leave early to a "job" but most quit their jobs after they are approved for senior option and still get to leave early since no one checks up on student working statuses. Too many students vape, do inappropriate things to each other in the bathrooms, come to school high, and although the lunch got better for the 2018-2019 school year it is still just average and hands out weird food they just come up with by using the weeks leftovers.
