Governor Livingston HS has been an excellent experience for my children. It offers an extensive range of extracurricular activities and it’s teachers and academic curriculum are world class. It’s college preparation offering has been amazing, as well. My daughter is feeling confident as she applies to colleges because of the resources that the school has provided, from college fairs to instruction for SAT/ACT and application process. It’s a top ranked NJ high school.
Overall, my experience at Governor Livingston High School was great! I was offered a challenging work course that enabled me to prepare myself for college. Almost all of my teachers were always available for extra help, whether it was before, during or after school. I never felt unsafe while being at school and the administration was extremely nice and helpful. The cafeteria always offers a variety of food that allows anyone to feel comfortable eating. The sports teams are not that great, except for baseball. Regardless, students still show support at sporting events.
