Attending Piscataway High School was one of the best decisions I've ever made, especially coming from Plainfield Public Schools district. The school is so big and diverse, I've never seen anything like it! Piscataway's sports teams are phenomenal, as well as their academics. I've learned so much in just one year of attending the school, and I honestly wish I chose to go there sooner. They have endless clubs and activities for students to join, and the staff really care about the children. I really love this school, and would recommend anyone thinking about sending their child here to do so.

Hello, I love P-Way! It was a great school. I was always into learning. All the teachers there always me to be me, I was encourage to pursue higher education, which I'm doing now. The kids the lessons I learned and being in a good environment helped me a lot. I felt safe and was not afraid to attend any events that was offered that. The number one thing, when ever I needed extra help. I was able to get it ASAP.
The home of the black and gold, PHS or Piscataway High School provides a diverse environment that allows people to learn, experience, and flourish. This school is the best four years of your life. The school provides plenty of clubs and activities to keep yourself occupied. Long term friends will be met and relationships will form over the years. I have loved PHS over the years, but the one flaw it can have is their lunches. Food in PHS hasn't been the greatest, to be honest. The teachers in our school work hard in order to ensure that our future is where it is supposed to be. Classes are diverse and plenty of races in our school. Our community continues to work hard and give back when the opportunity arises. Counselors in PHS are friendly and help students through the college process. I'm proud to have called PHS my home for the last three years and hope that my senior year will be filled with much success.
