Princeton Public Schools Reviews

There are many teachers that think they should be teaching in Princeton University. When you talk about balance or teachers grading you like you are attending Princeton University, rather than kids in high school that need balance, you get over stressed kids. There are a few abusive teachers, including the band director and head of the school newspaper, that behave seriously inappropriately in the classroom. From racially inappropriate comments, profanity and just plain mental abuse, the district allows it but sweeps it under the rug. The district has a huge problem admitting it has any problems. Lastly, Princeton High School sends an inordinately large amount of students to Princeton University. Naviance shows that on average over the past 5 years, Seventy five students apply and 35% of these students are admitted. That is primarily because their parents teach at the university. There are many kids that are admitted that don't deserve to be admitted to Princeton University.
Review Princeton Public Schools
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!
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.
