Pequannock Township High School Reviews
One of the greatest things at Pequannock Township High School, which I have realized over the past few years, is the teaching staff and administration. I can say from personal experience, that almost all of the teachers I have had are people who I know I can go to for extra help and feel comfortable around to ask any questions I may have. Additionally, the administration as a whole makes Pequannock Township High School a safe and secure place to attend, especially as a young adult. I can most definitely say that my great experience at this school is due to the individuals I have the opportunity to interact with every day.
I attended between the Fall 2012 and Spring2016. Despite many wonderful teachers & small but outstandingly talented music program, the administration, for the most part, was absolutely horrible. My grade had 4 (technically 5) principals during our 4 years there (& our 1st principal was an absolute disaster) and 3 different superintendents (the 1st 2were utterly and completely atrocious, though the 3rd was genuinely good and a vast improvement). Our school was also far too focused on the meaningless aspects of college preparation & not nearly focused enough on preparing us for lives in the real world as adults. The school was also set on destroying what had been for a long time one of the greatest music programs in the area, despite the love of the students in the program, the program's long and impressive history, & the efforts of everyone involved to stop them from shutting down one of the only aspects of that high school worth half a care.
I would like to see more "real life" interactions and preparation for the real world. It would also be very helpful if administration were to listen to the students and what changes they would like to see. The purpose of high school is to make the best decisions for the students and sometimes I feel like that is not always the case. Besides this, the school is super supportive of one another. It is a great place to be. Academic wise, it is challenging and the teachers are very qualified.
