Piscataway Township High school was a very enjoyable high school to go to. The required courses were informative and the teachers were very helpful. The many AP classes available challenged students and were a perfect opportunity to earn college credits. There were also many different electives available for students to choose.
The size of the school can be intimidating at first but it is quite easy to settle in and find a group of friends.
The most disappointing point comes from my experience while being an alumni of the school. Due to changes in rules regarding safety, there are no alumni visitors allowed. Even if you email the teacher you wish to visit so they can get the "OK" from a higher up you will be turned away at the door. It is very upsetting to see this policy be put in place.

I've been a student at Piscataway High School for 4 years. I graduated in June of 2018 which makes me a PHS alumni. When I came to the school, it was very diverse and it had a lot of events to get involved with the people who attended as well. PHS has many resources to help a student achieve Academic Success. It also benefits students who are seeking Interest. The outstanding teachers and facilities at PHS worked their hardest to insure that their students get the best education possible. Lastly, It is a great school where a student can have the necessary education to becoming successful while also having a great experience. I rate my school a 4 out of 5.
Being able to attend Piscataway High School for all four years has truly been a great experience. I learned so much about myself and those around me within the years. I had teachers who encouraged me do to better and who believed in me. Although school got challenging at time, my teachers were always there to help me. Also, Piscataway High School has made it easier for me to get ready for college. Most of my classes use college concepts and also offers college credits. Piscataway High School also offers many different club and activities that everyone can participate in, so therefore no one is left out. During these four years, Piscataway High School has truly left like a home and a big family.
