My experience at Princeton High School has been like a roller coaster ride. My freshman and Sophomore year it was just as I pictured high school to be. I enjoyed how the classes were split into four classes a day, breaking it up into two days. It gave us more time to learn and work on assignments. But as my Junior year hit, Coronavirus happened. We were sent into quarantine and online school. I, personally, was not ready for online school because I had been used to in-person. I think that the teachers and school board did a good job teaching us online, although I prefer in-person because I learn a bit better. I liked the teachers and staff here. They were all so nice and very helpful to me. I like how my school strives to show off school spirit. Honestly, I don't know what I would change about my school. We have already changed because of the coronavirus, so things are not as they normally should be. I think we are doing the best we can to continue our education.
I like how Princeton High School values the importance of academics over sports. The teachers in the high schools make sure your grades are average before you can play a sport. I feel like PHS could improve the student culture. As of right now, PHS does little to make students feel comfortable being themselves. Also, the high school does not allow much creativity for students. I think a mural made by the students, or more opportunities to express our creativity or feel comfortable opening up to the faculty around us would be a huge improvement. I hear a lot of students say high school feels like prison, so if PHS could change that mentality, that would be a huge improvement.
I personally had a wonderful time at PHS, because I had people such as my friends, family, and teachers who supported and helped me throughout my four years there. I learned a lot while I was there and I had fun during it as well. I can say that those four years have been the best times of my life so far, and I miss it dearly.
in my two years of attending Princeton High School I have had a good experience. the teachers are great, and they really care about their students and want them to pass, and want them to have a successful life. Mostly everyone, gets along and everyone is nice to other people. there really isn't "cliques" at school, and everyone just does their own thing. Your grade is big, but not too big, so you know who everyone is. There isn't really much i would change about the school, maybe one thing would be the p.e. because my friend has a hard time doing everything that is expected of them, and they try, but they aren't as athletic as everyone else. So then they don't get a good grade in class.
I overall had a great time at PHS. The school made it possible to be active in a variety of sports and academic clubs without them interfering with each other. The teachers are willing to help and are engaged with the students. The academics could be improved as they do not offer any AP or dual-credit classes currently.
The administration & school board have issues. Recently, they were found to have violated the Open Meetings Act with regards to the dismissal of a coach they had just hired. Although the findings of guilt were non-binding, it doesn’t excuse the fault the school board had with regards to this decision.
Administration, the board, teachers, and coaches stick together and don’t put the students first. If you originated from Princeton, you have a better chance at succeeding and participating in sports and events. Most teachers are graduates from Princeton and have the same mentality and some how feel they can say and do as they please, with no consequences. Your talent, sadly does not guarantee you a sport position, or active part or role in an activity, but your name does.
This school needs more AP classes. The current curriculum does not provide students the opportunity to take AP classes and earn college credit. By adding this feature, the scores would be higher. This will also draw more students to this high school.
Princeton High School is a great school!! It's a nice size ...... not too little but not too big. There are many activities and sports to participate in. There is something for everyone.
My experience at PHS wasn't bad. Some teachers were iffy, but there were others that were phenomenal and that taught me everything about their subjects. The Sports programs are very good as well.
I moved to Princeton High School in the middle of my sophomore year. Overall the staff at PHS was welcoming and friendly. They helped me through my transition from one high school to another. The thing I would change is that I wish there were more options at PHS. There are not many clubs and there are no college credit classes offered.
The action taken to diciplen students is not helpful what so ever in the case of bullying. Otherwise my experience isn’t bad. I have opportunities to graduate midterm.
The school spirit is phenomenal. Some of the teachers could be replaced with better ones but all in all, its a decent school.
I am glad to be attending the same school as my mom and grandmother. Although the building has changed several times since they attended it has remained an overall good hometown school. I have enjoyed the relatively small class sizes and personal attention from teachers. I have had the opportunity to attend a vocational school to start my nursing career. The environment at the school has been easy to to adapt to also.
The teachers could have explained more about the assignment instead of just say here you go and give you the assignment. The food was very Delicious,and the cooks are very friendly the principal is very nice because he doesn't deal with bulling we need more principals like Mr. Olsen
Princeton High School is a very good school that gives a promising and wonderful high school education. Not only are the academics great, but it has one of the best music programs in the entire state, and is in the top 120 in the United States. Princeton High School is also known for its excellence in sports.
The teachers care a lot more than what I have heard from other area high schools. The education is top notch and has prepared past students for college careers at Harvard, West Point, WashU, USC, and Washington and Lee.
