Pompton Lakes School District Reviews

Pompton Lakes High School has great academics and resources however lacks some of the programs that prepare students in surrounding areas to further their education. The faculty is completely devoted to helping the students and genuinely care for their well-being, the diversity at PLHS is slightly skewed due to its location but I consider myself better educated after my semester spent in Sociology class. Pompton Lakes High School brings a level of pride and tradition, when I call myself a cardinal I am proud and would not rather be at any other institution.

Pompton Lakes School District offers its student a unique learning atmosphere that feels much more like a family than a school system. With a small, tight-knit community students at Pompton Lakes High School find it easy to connect with their teachers and piers making learning more enjoyable.
It was a very sweet, non-violent, equal treating, welcoming school. Encompassed all of the traditions of a small-town high-school and allowed for many students to create many memories.
