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.

Going to pompton lakes high school is a blessing. It's not like a regular high school. When you walk into the school it feels like home, every staff member knows your name. Everyone is open to helping anyone who needs a extra hand or just needs a friends. You are never alone. The teachers will take an leap to get you where you want to be with you academics. It's a pleasure being able to go to Pompton Lakes high school, everyone is family and it is more like a second home then a school.
I graduated from Pompton Lakes High School a few years ago and the High School was enjoyable at times to me. I felt that Elementary School and Middle School weren't as enjoyable in my opinion as the high school was which makes sense since more freedom is given to the students in high school. I had some problems with the teachers over the years and wished that the school would prepare us for real life and college more than they do for the PARCC exams and such.
