I like the rigorous academic programs of J.P Stevens High School. Although the competitive nature of the students does make it hard to feel like you succeed sometimes, and helps prepare us for really rigorous future programs. The clubs are great as there is a huge teacher as well as student involvement. The Student Council does a great job in conveying the school's announcements and concerns to the normal student body. Perhaps I would love to see a change in terms of addressing mental health more often and advertising the school's resources more. Our school does provide resources, but multiple students are unaware or not fully informed. I see our competitive nature can seriously hurt some students, and while it makes strong-minded individuals, I believe as a community we should look after each other. As JP does that in every aspect already, adding mental health to it would be better! Overall I will miss this school in college. JP taught me some of my hardest lessons I ever learned.
JP Stevens is a wonderful high school with so many opportunities to guarantee success and victory for the coming future. They prepare you well for college, and explain to you what life after college would look like! The teachers are wonderful and patient. Like every good teacher, they show you the path of success and help you flourish and grow throughout your experience at JP. JP is an over-all school, which means they don't just focus on a specific type of group. FOr example, they don't just focus on the children's academics, or on athletics. They keep their eyes everywhere, making sure their students are fulfilled with what the school has to offer. Our principals and other leaders do not turn down great ideas! Especially idea's that can help improve the school! My experience here was not the same as others, for everybody had a different life In path. But through my eyes, JP has helped me flourish, mature, and helped me become into the great women you see staring back at me today.
As a senior in the class of 2020, I can say that I had a great Highschool career. Academics are incredible at the school and we are very good at our sports. The students, however, tend to prioritize grades over everything and the teachers are excellent at preparing students for their next step in life. The only problem I could find with JP is its crowding issue. The school is horribly overpopulated to the point where passing in between classes would need to push over five minutes. You rub shoulders basically with everyone in the hallway. And it’s horrific during the summer months. But in every other area, JP absolutely excels!
