Princeton high school is a really fun school to attend . The teachers and students all get along very well andstudents learn a lot there. There are lots of activities after school that students can go to. I personally have gone to art club and I had a blast! I am planning to go to bookclub eventually to connect with some of my friends there. I really enjoy going to Princeton High School but there's not that much diversity. It's not a very big school, so there is not a lot of diversity. I wish it were a bigger school that way I could see lots of different types of people.

I am genuinely grateful for everything this school has given me. I've grown stronger as a person, done more than I ever thought I could, and have learned so much. There is simply so much to study at PHS. From Computer Science, American Literature, Journalism, Economics, and so much more, you really can be anyone you want to be at this school. The only problem I have with the school is that there is a huge issue with racial representation in AP/accelerated classes. They're dominated by White and Asian students, and its rare if you see a Black or a Hispanic student in one of those classes. I've always "stood out" in my classes. The district has recently tried to adress this problem and so far I think they've done a pretty good job. Once again, I'm grateful to be a part of a district that acknowledges these types of subtle (but important) issues.
I spent all of my high school years at Princeton High School, and thoroughly enjoyed each one of them. I made lasting friendships and had the opportunity to participate in various clubs and organizations. Princeton High School commends those who have varying interests, and exploring various passions was crucial in clarifying who I wanted to become. When I wasn't focused on my extracurriculars, I was studying. PHS provided a competitive, challenging academic environment which more than prepared me upon entering college. Through advanced and AP classes, my critical thinking abilities were greatly strengthened, and the high standards that were set continuously motivated me to give my best performance. The standards weren't the only motivators, however, because most of the encouragement came from my excellent teachers. Each teacher I had cared about each individual student, and went the extra mile to get us thinking outside the box. I truly had an amazing four years at this school.
