Parsippany Hills High School Reviews

Parsippany Hills High School is an incredible high school that provides opportunities and resources allowing students to choose the rigor of their academic career. A multicultural melting pot, Parsippany Hills High School offers several culture clubs and organizations that reflect the diverse student body and allow for cross-cultural exploration. Always adapting, PHHS integrates technology throughout its curricula and modifies its scheduling to keep up with the ever-progressing world.

Devotion to academic excellence, cultural curiosity, technologically inclusive lessons, and even their delicious food, all pale in comparison to PHHS's hardworking staff of educators. In my experience, I have had incredible teachers who earnestly care about their students. Always willing to answer a question I had or explain a concept I did not understand during class, my teachers were always concerned with the understanding and development of their students, a concern that pervaded all levels of PHHS.

My experience at PHHS has been very insightful. Teachers are very helpful and will go the extra mile to make students feel comfortable with studies and other aspects of the school environment. There is much diversity which also contribites to having a comfortable envioronment. If a student is having trouble in a class academic wise, there are tutors available after school to make sure the sutdent can fully grasp the information that they are struggling with. There are a variety of clubs and extra curricular activities to choose from that spark your interests. Seniors are also fully equiped for the college application process with help from counselors and college meetings with guidance counselors to ensure that you are ready. Overall PHHS is a safe and fun school environment to learn and socialize with other students and teachers.
Parsippany Hills has an amazing group of teachers and other staff members. I feel very comfortable and safe because I know that most teachers will be there for me to help or just talk. Also, the staff is very understanding of kids having other things to do when they get home instead of only school work. They also have just about every sport or club anyone could want, which I love because it allows everyone to feel like they have something to be apart of. Additionally, the atmosphere is very welcoming. When you walk in, you feel like you belong because teachers are there to greet you and the walls are designed with paintings done by students there. The only negative thing I have to say is some of the staff are the opposite of understanding and compassionate. There are teachers that refuse to provide you with help and do not care about why your work was late. Overall, my school has a great education system with diligent staff members and a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy.
