I loved the teachers, they really care for their students and wish for them all to succeed and go to college. The AP and Honor classes were very challenging and prepared me for college. There were many clubs and sports offered. I was in the school's robotics, stem, and gardening club! There are a lot of opportunities in New Brunswick high school with faculty that care but you have to take initiative, don't be afraid to ask teachers about programs being offered, scholarships, and internship experiences. Basically, like everything your education is a reflection of how much work you put into it so take control of your future and have fun !

My name is catherine and I’m a former student at New Brunswick high! Ive been attending that school for four years now, this being my last. New Brunswick high has been an amazing experience, it dors have some cons to it but overall my experience is well. My class of 2020 are and did make changes to the school that make it a better environment. The teachers are overall good, trying to help and reach out to students and being active with them. Our students are hard working, we treat each other with respect and we’re trying to make our mark on this school.
New Brunswick High School is overall a decent high school, but I would not recommend it to people. The school has staff and faculty who care about students to a certain extent, but not enough to motivate them. Teachers in particular have a tendency of giving up on students once they begin to slack off. Instead of asking the students if they need help, or if anything is wrong with them emotionally, the students are punished and reflect a poor academic performance. Other than school work, the clubs are frequently promoted and students feel compelled to join because of that.
