I really appreciated the diversity of students and the excellence of teaching at Piscataway High School The enthusiasm in the school has increased over the last four years that I have attended. Much of that is due to Principal Jason Lester who arrived 5 years ago. Chris Sumner, "Doc" has instilled passion in his marching band in spite of any trial that comes our way. I feel challenged and prepared for college as I take 4 AP classes and 5 AP exams this year to enter college with several credits under my belt. Piscataway High School has ranked high in both academics, sports and music. I feel prepared for college in every way as I have gleaned from the many diverse experiences that I have learned from at PHS.

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 actually really enjoy Piscataway high school. Piscataway is very diverse. The school is also very large which makes it exciting because everyday in the hallways you are bound to meet new people. All of the students and teachers are honestly great as well. The teachers here are very caring and want to see you succeed. Although the classes may be tough if you take AP or honors, teachers will always make sure you get the extra help you need. I have met amazing friends at this High school that I hope I can keep in my life forever.
