Princeton High School Reviews

65 reviews

Each experience is different depending on where you are at on the high school food chain. Extremely conservative, so it is not open to new ideas. Expect to be an outcast if you are not straight, white, Christian, rich, and a conservative. Predominantly white so people think it's acceptable to use certain slang or say, "I hate black/Mexican people". The teachers are biased and it shows in the classroom. Receiving help is difficult because they do not know what they are talking about or they are unwilling to help. Staff pushes community college so many are not informed of 4 year colleges or to be realistic when it comes to choosing( 1.5 GPA no foreign language expecting to go to Duke). School is huge on athletics so it doesn't acknowledge anything else.

I love Princeton High School. You feel at home even at school. Your teachers respect you if you respect them. Its great place if you grew up there but even if you haven't thats okay also, everyone makes you feel welcome. Our athletics aren't as good as what they once were but they're doing what they can to work their way back up. Growing up in a school that made me feel like I was at home made me want to go to a college that also gave me that feeling. Thats why I chose mount olive.
Princeton High School is an excellent school. It is located in a small town and everyone seems to know everyone. I have invested a lot of time and effort into the Princeton High School community through volunteering, studying hard, and leading others to love Princeton as much as I do. I am happy to call this place home.
