I feel really lucky that I went to Livingston High School. It is full of opportunities I know a lot of other schools don't necessarily offer, like TV classes and Chinese. I was pretty active in the athletics at LHS; its really competitive and the coaches I had were fantastic. LHS definitely pushes its students to "reach for the stars" in terms of academics, athletics and extra curricular activities. It was pretty cliquey though, and that was a problem for a lot of people. Also, I feel like they really pushed you to go the typical college route and did explore other potential options for students. But I loved their muffins!

Livingston Senior High School is an experience like no other. Last year, my freshman year, was a difficult year for the Livingston community, yet instead of crumbling due to the pressure put on our community, we thrived. Faculty and students alike were fully supportive and strong throughout the multiple troubles that we faced last year. The change I would like to see happen, is more school spirit. This school community has pulled through much hardship, yet school spirit is not very evident in the halls of Livingston High. It would be nice to see students proud of their school, and showing it throughout the school year, not only on spirit days and pep rallies.
My experience at Livingston was great. The teachers are what I like most about the school. They are mostly hard-working and determined to help their students achieve and learn best. My favorite program in school is the Orchestra, and I have been a part of it for four years. It really made my experience that much greater because music is what I love, and Orchestra allowed me to enjoy and advance my musical skills and talents.

While competitive and high-achieving students take AP/honor classes, I recommend taking classes that suit you and your level of learning. I found that students at our school focus way too much on their academics. Anyone can get into college with hard work in any level of classes, but not everyone will be able to find what major or career they like to pursue. Livingston Highschool has so many classes to choose from. One should definitely take that opportunity to find an interest.
