I am currently a Junior and am having my best year ever. The teachers are all highly motivated and truly care about your success in life. The coaches in all the athletics push you to be the best you can be. I would definitely recommend this school if you are moving into the area. The high school is not very old and is updated to help us better prepare for college. I would definitely like to see the school expand the opportunities for more technical trades. There are many students that would benefit with those classes to be better prepared for the jobs in our area. Overall it’s a great school!

Princeton is a more diverse town than surrounding areas. It has a history of great basketball teams for both male and female. Faculty is very approachable. The local law enforcement have a positive and visible presence at our school. Our local industies includes agriculture and manufacturing. These areas are addressed in the classes offered at Princeton Community High. Efforts are made for childcare if a student becomes a parent during high school, thus allowing that student to complete high school. Over all i feel the opportunity for receiving an education is achievable regardless of any one person's circumstances.
Princeton Community High School is a great school with small classes and amazing teachers who are willing to help students when they need it. The choice in the type of classes are small because the student body isn't very big, but what is offered is interesting and engaging. Also all students are encouraged to get involved with school clubs, activities, and athletics, as well as getting involved in the community.
