Phillipsburg High School Reviews
Dump less money into sports and focus on building up the academics and arts. Theres a lot of potential, and the school has talented students. The budget just doesnt support them.
The teachers are usually very enthusiastic about what they teach and give students many opportunities to ask questions and get help outside of class. There are also many clubs to join, ranging from anime to drama to future business leaders of America. The new building is amazing, however, its location is not. Up on top of a hill with only one road to go up and down is not ideal when everybody wants to leave at the end of the day nor in an emergency. The students are generally nice with those who aren't given just consequences. The time in between classes could be lengthened a minute or two as well. While the students like to say the school isn't good, like many other schools, it is a good school overall.
The school culture, and club activities were very good. Teachers provided an atmosphere for learning - willing to help students to achieve their goals.
Recently the school was just built and it is a new building compared to the previous high school. The teachers here are excellent and teach well, they care about the well being of their students and they want to see their students go down a successful path in life.
While some more challenging academic classes help students succeed, slower paced classes often allow their students to fall behind. The school is very sports oriented but the arts program is still very strong.
If you were lucky, you got some of the teachers who truly cared about their students. They would always be there to help you out with anything you need. Also the math department does a good job at trying to keep their class fun. However the classes could be better in terms of teaching. I don't feel like they did that great getting me to feel ready for college.
The atmosphere of the school is depressing, to be honest. It's not surprising, but the cafeteria food has had many complaints and the bathrooms are not all that sanitary. You can get an average education there at best, although the teachers don't show very much involvement with their students.
I like the school. Overall it has been a good experience so far. I am actively involved in theater and singing. I like to stay involved in these activities and would love to pursue a career in theater upon entering college.
The new school building and facilities are amazing. Very beautiful. Some of the teachers need to retire, they seem to have forgotten their role is to teach, lead, inspire, motivate the young people who will be the future.
Phillipsburg High School was recently rebuilt into a nicer, more modern building. I would change the teachers and the administration in the school. Some teachers don't know how to handle things correctly in terms of discipline and racism towards students.
My experience as a graduate from this school was very interesting it had its ups and downs I grew up with everyone knew everyone I just had a fun experience being in that environment
I love the new school. I had the honor of singing for the Governor. Communication is lacking. Some teachers need additional training on how to deal with students who learn in different ways.
Phillipsburg High School is filled with school spirit and a very warm and welcoming place with the nicest teachers that will impact your life.
Phillupsburg is what you make of it. You can craft for yourself a rigorous educational experience, and learn from the diversity and social influences that make PHS such a vibrant place– or, you can make it easy for yourself to just skate by, and get lost a long the way. If you utilize your resources well, your time at PHS can be great, but you have to reach out. My best advice is: join clubs and challenge yourself academically. If you do your best to learn from the diversity around you, instead of being scared or throw off by it, you will have a much better experience at PHS.
It's a great school with great tradition. Some of the staff are alumni and understand what the students are experiencing. I would highly recommend bringing your child here.
Phillipsburg High School is a good school. I enjoyed my time there. The teachers are very nice and are skilled and experienced in their classes. Sports teams are very good as well as the environment of the school. I would recommend this school to parents looking to move to the area. Location is also convenient.
I love the diversity of students and staff in the school. The staff themselves come from different walks of life and never hesitate to help a student. As always no one works unless you do and it's your choice on whether you want succeed or lay back and be lazy.
