Growing up in Livingston, I have always been excited to go to high school here. I love the school and having the incredible staff and administration ready to help the students with whatever they need is very comforting. I am excited to embark on my next journey in college, but I will without a doubt miss this school and will never forget my experiences here. Students are able to feel truly connected to their teachers and are given many opportunities!

I am very privileged to live in Livingston and especially attend the Livingston High School. Despite having a reputation of awful diversity and a very segregated school of Asians and Whites, the resources available for us to be successful are very helpful. However, there is no one side of the school. The school has very amazing teachers who deserve so much respect with their willingness to help students, but sadly it also has teachers who are very hypocritical- asking for respect from student yet are very disrespectful (usually the ones with tenure contracts). Especially coming from a student who moved from a different country, it is obvious that students who are born and raised in Livingston or around Livingston tend to display a very narrow-minded mind. It's sad to see how they perceive everything being around them.
Overall, the educational opportunities at Livingston High School make it one of the top schools. The staff and students are friendly and helpful for the most part, and there are a wide range of courses. The free enrollment policy allows students to challenge themselves, or choose not to--their fate is in their hands. The Honors and AP classes can be stressful, but fun and enriching as well. While students may complain about the stress of taking any of the many available AP or Honors courses, they rarely express regret, and instead embrace the hard work that comes with a great education. Livingston also offers a ton of fun electives like Music Tech and Fashion, with close-to state-of-the-art equipment. There are so many clubs and events to include the student body and the community that it is easy for anyone to fit in.
