Pompton Lakes School District Reviews

Pompton Lakes is a small town. I have only 150 kids in my graduating class but for a small school we offer a lot. Regardless of the sport, we have the most fans in our stands at home and away games. Our school spirit is amazing.
I am currently taking a AP course and two dual enrollment classes which will afford me the opportunity to start college in the fall with credits already. We take it for granted but when I talk to friends from other schools , they do not have the volume of classes to pick from that I do at Pompton.

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.
