Point Pleasant Borough High School Reviews
Point Pleasant Boro high school is a great place... if you were born and raised in point pleasant. While the education I recieved and the teachers I met were amazing, the serious isolation to new students is a huge problem. Every new student I met felt the same way; nobody will talk to me. I moved in my junior year of high school, and I was excited about meeting new people and making friends. I never have had an issue with making friends before in my life, until I attended PPBHS. I joined clubs and sport teams, but nobody wanted to talk and acted annoyed when I tried to talk to them. This wicked isolation left me feeling seriously depressed, so I dual enrolled for my senior year (a program only one other student does). That being said, I rate it 2 stars because of the few teachers and other new student who really helped me get through my junior year. Being treated like I am “less than” also helped to make me a much stronger person in the long run.
Point Pleasant Boro High School has made my high school experience great. Most teachers genuinely seem to care about making their students succeed and are the right mix of fun while still preparing us for college, AP tests etc. Not a fan of the administration, mainly Karsich, and the beetles that seem to out populate students when the weather is warm. However, the overall experience has far outweighed all of that.
I found in Point Pleasant Borough High School that teachers tried their best to connect with their students in order to make a difference in the classroom. Most teachers were ready to help a student, whether it be by staying after school, coming in earlier, or even during lunch/study halls. However, there was never much school spirit going on in the borough, which made spirit weeks and pep rallies almost pointless. Overall, Point Pleasant Borough High School was a decent school to attend.
