Phillipsburg High School Reviews
An average high school experience. The PHS marching band made my high school experience work it. While in the band, I was treated as an individual and not just a number. We were given the opportunity to travel to New Orleans, Orlando, and MetLife stadium.
I played sports in high school and it was a great experience. There are many different ways you can get involved and make friends. The sports there are he for the community.
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.
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.
I liked the overall appeal of Phillipsburg High School. The teachers are friendly and work to better your life. They truly love their job and will stop at nothing to see their students succeed. The atmosphere is not the best at times but the school pride is like no other. The student section at football games was always the biggest.
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.
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 is truly what you make of it. There's bad and good in every high school, and P'burg is no exception. If you stay the course and you study hard and surround yourself with good friends, get involved in school extracurricular activities, and study hard you will be fine. I have done all of this and I can truly say that my high school experience has been a good one. Although PHS has it's negatives (some bad teachers, guidance department, etc,) there are a lot of oppturnites at this school and if you take advantage of it you will be successful.
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
Phillipsburg High School is filled with school spirit and a very warm and welcoming place with the nicest teachers that will impact your life.
I have been a student at Phillipsburg high school for 3 years, this year I will be a senior. In my time here I have learned a lot, and I feel the teachers, especially those for more advanced classes, are kind and always willing to help! They are enthusiastic and I have had a lot of fun growing and learning here! After school clubs and groups are always welcoming and feel meaningful to participate in!
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.
