I like the high school overall. I like the clubs and amount of diversity. I want them to fix: the math classes/ pathway, some requirements to take certain classes, having basic supplies in stock, etc.
As far as safety goes, there are police officers and staff monitoring around the school, however I often see students getting into physical fights and even vaping! I wish they would be more reprimanded according to their actions, and I wish the school was more alert and aware.
Some teachers show favoritism and are too strict, and the workload is insane! School starts way too early in the morning, students are often depressed, tired, and unconcentrated in class, including myself.
Gym class way to difficult, they mostly force you to over exert yourself or you will get a worse grade... and however many classes you miss (even 1) you have to make up afterschool- or else you get points taken off your grade! Even if its excused by a hospital or doctor! The school does get very crowded.

Looking back at my four years at SBHS and having talked to friends that go to similar schools in the area (WWPs, Montgomery, JP Stevens) SBHS offers a stellar education while maintaining a very diverse high school experience. Education wise, SBHS offers several advanced courses and electives. I was able to truly explore my interests in Computer Science and Math (both of which are great departments at SBHS). The teachers are amazing at this school and go beyond the call of duty to connect with students. SBHS is also incredibly diverse in its student body and their interests. The school has an incredible marching band and music groups, top-notch athletic teams and several clubs. Honestly, SBHS was an amazing experience and it was a perfect balance between extracurriculars, academics and most importantly fun.
Also I got into a T20 and all of my extracurriculars were in SBHS so I really can’t thank this school enough.
Central Jersey is a pretty big region, and rarely are there schools that are unique as South Brunswick High School. It can be quite difficult to make friends in South Brunswick High School, especially since everybody is very comfortable in their social groups. Yet, there's still a respect that people have for one another when it's reciprocated, even though there can still be some tension here and there. It's a respect that continues even when students get competitive with one another through exams or activities. The best part is that, not all students are extremely competitive. Though the school may not be the most racially diverse, it's definitely diverse ability-wise, which gives an opportunity for all students to work together at different levels and strive to be their very best. I'm grateful to be in South Brunswick High School, even if I may not be friends with everyone.
