I love Princeton Public Schools. Overall, it's been great. Sure, there are always a couple of bad egg teachers, but you get that at any school. Great opportunities for music and sports, and the academics are fantastic!
Review Princeton Public Schools
Princeton Public Schools (high school in particular) has very little socioeconomic diversity, although it is a very international school in many respects because of the transiency of the area. The high school's culture: extreme focus on grades and college acceptances. Many students push themselves to the brink of their capabilities and sanity for a college acceptance and place too much self-worth into it.
I enjoyed my experience as a member of the student community. Everyone is very supportive of each other. My teachers were excellent instructors and generally seemed to care about students as complete individuals. My college counselor was great but I wish I had more support from my regular academic guidance counselor and the administration.
